Happy 4th of July to all of my readers in the United States of America!
Today is the day that we celebrate the freedom of our nation and how blessed we are to live with this kind of freedom.
I found some quotes about just how important our freedom is and thought that this would be a good time to share them.
Without freedom of thought there can be no such thing as wisdom; and no such thing as public liberty, without freedom of speech. – Benjamin Franklin
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. – Abraham Lincoln
Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must undergo the fatigue of supporting it. – Thomas Paine
A people fired… with love of their country and of liberty, a zeal for the public good, and a noble emulation of glory, will not be disheartened or dispirited by a succession of unfortunate events. But like them, may we learn by defeat the power of becoming invincible. – Abigail Adams
May we think of freedom, not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right. – Peter Marshall
I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death! – Patrick Henry
I highly recommend taking the time to read the Declaration of Independence today if you have not already.
I hope that you have a wonderful 4th of July!
