Happy Independence Day

From the Declaration of Independence

We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

America has always been “Great” – We need to make it “Great” for everyone!

Peace & Harmony

Happy 4th of July

 

I found this video last year – I remember my Mom had a Ray Charles album with this song on it, she would turn-up-the-volume on this song while frying that chicken for the  BBQ! Today, when you are out celebrating with your families and loved ones . . . young and old – Please take a moment and not only give a Prayer to Our Brave that serve and have served this Country, but a Prayer to little ones that are waiting to be reunited with their families.

I am not interested in what political line you stand in, that is your right – I am coming from a Teacher’s heart, that knows how a child of 2.9 to 5 years old feels the moment their parents, their Grandma, their Aunt, their Uncle walks out the door to go to work everyday, and we reassure them that they will return, and they do with lots of hugs and kisses! My heart breaks for these children that sit everyday and wait . . . and wait . . . and wait . . . and wait for someone of some familiarity to come through that door and grab them to give hugs and kisses!
