Oh, man, do I *LOVE* this AMAZING country!!!

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.  ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

I feel the same as you do, my dear friend! What an amazing country we live in!
You would have appreciated one of the lectures we had at the museum today - a shortened biography of ALL the signers of the Declaration of Independence. It was fantastic and so informative. Wish you could have been there!

I hope you're enjoying your weekend with all of your loved ones. :) xoxoxo.
