Wishing you all the Happiest of 4th's! We're so grateful to live in this great Country and to celebrate with these amazing photos by Jessica Paxson Photography.
Also--thought we'd share a thought for the day. We love this and hope it instills in you a desire to truly teach your children of AMERICA!
Dr. Kenneth McFarland, a great non-partisan, national patriot, gave a speech entitled "Selling America to Americans." He told about a young soldier who returned from Vietnam. In a very serious talk with his parents, the young soldier asked if they loved America. He asked how they felt about this great and glorious nation. Both mother and father got a little teary eyed and said that they loved this country dearly, that it was more precious to them than their own life. "Why didn't you tell me that when I was growing up?" he said. "I never heard you once say that you loved America. You never taught me to love it. I can't tell you what an ungrateful pup I have been. I had to go to Vietnam to find out what the United States of America is all about. I would gladly lay down my life for it. I would have given anything to know how you felt about it when I was growing up."
Hope you all have a great day spent with family and loved ones!
