To all my American readers...Happy 4th of July!

I thought I would honor some famous Americans today, to pay tribute to those historical figures who have made me proud to be an American. I hope you have a wonderful safe! Please don't drink and drive. Please be safe with fireworks.

Abraham Lincoln

[quote from his dedication to the military cemetery at Gettysburg:] "That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain--that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom--and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."

Carrie Chapman Catt
Founder, the League of Women Voters

"To the wrongs that need resistance, To the right that needs assistance, To the future in the distance, Give yourselves."
