Independence Day

July 4, 2016

The Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4, 1776

By the Kingdom of Great Britain

It continues to be day spent with family and friends

who are all grateful for both their freedom and independence

The men and women who have sacrificed and continue to sacrifice their lives for us

are appreciated on the day of Independence

There are not enough words to fully show how we all feel for the privilege of

celebrating this day with all those who make it possible for us

to maintain our freedom

Thank you deeply from the bottom of my heart

for all that’s been done and will continue to be done

So selflessly by many

I know I came into this world without an invitation
I further know that I was created out of love between two people
I was born at time when things were changing
John F Kennedy died 7 months after my arrival
There was a sadness upon our country
At age 5 we lost Martin Luther King Jr
There was continued sadness
Through the years both happiness and sadness remain
But there is so much to be thankful and grateful for
We are all thriving and the world continues to grow
One important thing that has not changed
is that through changes in our presidents, governors and mayors
and through thick and thin
and through stormy weather
We still have our independence
Which gives us much to celebrate
