To My Friends & Neighbours

May Peace, Prosperity and Mirth
envelop your Nation,
May the essence of Brotherhood
and Sisterhood be alive in your hearts,
May the Pride and Honour of your great Country
touch each of you, as you
Celebrate Independence Day.
"You have to respect a nation that celebrates its Independence every July 4th, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers marching by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw footballs, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is called patriotism" ~ Erma Bombeck
from "NORTH of the BORDER".
