The Fourth of July

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

My Poem of the Day

(10/22/14)

Slowly Dying©

You left me crying while you lay slowly dying

Stumped by a system bent on tradition

To turning a blind eye on those who need them the most

You sat in a cell

Living through hell

Day in and day out

Battered and bullied

By those who always have something to prove

Don’t ask me why I’ve relied

on

A system that’s always plotting

To be certain that you wont walk out talking

About the cracks in halls of justice

Once you fight their actions

That caused you

To no longer want

To be here among the land of the living

Instead you left me here crying while you lay there slowing dying

While I stand here fighting and relying on “we the people”

To bring you justice

My Poem of the Day

(10/18/14)

On the Charles©

The river is host to many an event

The Annual Head of the Charles Regatta

Athletes from 32 countries come to showcase their talents

Hoping to be on top at events end

The picturesque walking paths host many walks and runs for all types of causes

The Hatch Shell is the home for weekly Flicks during hot summer nights

Don’t forget the fourth of July celebrations

and

Summer concerts

I’ve seen many a family picnic upon the open green

How about some Zumba to keep you fit

The Charles brings miles of smiles to all kinds of faces from all kinds of places

I’ll always fondly remember my time on the Charles
