Independence Day

4th+of+july23.jpgJuly 4, 1776

242 years ago, our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence.  They wanted their freedom from Britain and King George.  It was an historic day.  It is the birthday of this great land that we live in.  I was thinking that if the Lord tarries and my health continues to stay well, I will get to celebrate birthday #250.  I remember the big deal that 1976 was – the big bicentennial year.  I marched in several Bicentennial parades – one in the little village of Neffs, PA and the big Allentown parade.  It was a long parade, lasting several hours.

So today, let’s celebrate the freedoms that we have that our founding fathers gave us.   Happy Birthday USA
