The 4th of July is often associated with picnics, fireworks, and fun.  It is also a day to celebrate our country's birthday.  It is also a time to reflect on and appreciate the freedom we enjoy. 

America will never be destroyed from the outside.  If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.  Abraham Lincoln

America was not built on fear.  American was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.  Harry S Truman

We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty.  When the loyal opposition dies, I think the soul of America dies with it.  Edward R, Murrow-Journalist

Happy 241st Birthday, America!
