What does the 4th of July mean to you? 

                             Cat and flag

Need a flag to share your thoughts... feel free to download on flickr and have fun with it.  It's the Flag below with no content so feel free to share your own thoughts as we reflect on the 4th of July.  If you missed my fun post on great ways to use flickr to create url's you can find it here.  

As I get older the thoughts of the 4th of July get deeper.... so for growth in grace here we go!  

               Flag

Thinking about 1776, where we have come from and where we are going as America. 

Thinking about the founding Fathers and who they had a common vision for FREEDOM.

Pondering:

  • What responsibilities do I have as an American citizen?
  • What can I do to help myself and others?
  • What does the constitution mean to me and it’s amendments?
  • How am I making a difference in America?

The basics include:

The Pledge of Allegiance:

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

The Constitution:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.  

Did you know that the 1st 10 Amendments are known as the Billl of Rights?

Did you know there are 27 Amendments to the US Constitution?

Did you know that the 26th Amendment gave 18 year olds the right to vote in 1971?

The Discovery Chanel has created this video sharing how the National Archives Building in Washington D.C. with it's contents, inspires Americans with history! 

Be Safe, have fun and make a difference in America by considering the possibility of doing something to help others!  

Thanking those who have served in so many selfless jobs to keep us FREE!  

This year on the 4th of July answer the question... "what does this Holiday mean to me?" with some specific action.
