"Our country is not the only thing to which we owe our allegiance. It is also owed to justice and to humanity. Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong." ~James Bryce
"This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave." ~Elmer Davis
Happy Independence Day, everyone--I hope everybody has a great weekend. :)
And please--keep in mind those who allow (and have allowed) you to celebrate and enjoy this time. We have so much for which to be grateful.
