Chapter 7, Page 4, Book 14

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. 

The Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776

The pursuit of happiness means so many different things for so many people and this country of ours provides the means and ways to have it.  We are not guaranteed happiness but the ability to pursue it equally.  We are very blessed indeed.  Happiness is what you make it and it’s within your control.

Remember the Fourth of July isn't all about barbecues and fireworks. It's also about freedom, liberty and the birthday of our country.  This day has an special place for every American as America celebrates its Independence Day on fourth of July. 

God bless the USA!

I think this song says it all !

O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain, 
For purple mountains majesty 
Above thy fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee 
And crown thy good with brotherhood 
From sea to shining sea!

  I wish you all a Happy Independence Day. Happy 4th of July!

Have a safe blessed holiday. May almighty God bless the United States of America! Amen!
