Saturday: May the   “Fourth Be With You” and With Your Spirit. 

5 Jul

Those who won our independence believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty.” — Louis D. Brandeis

Wow! I’ve got a Star Wars and Catholic thing going on. It’s 4th of July, Independence Day. A day to be grateful for our freedom, our families, and our future. Not everyone has these privileges. A day to count your blessings and to honor those who sacrificed so much. 

The American flag is displayed with pride, and there are several explanations of the meaning of the colors , but according to the American Legion…According to custom and tradition, white signifies purity and innocence; red, hardiness and valor; and blue signifies vigilance, perseverance, and justice.

  
I stand in your shadow

Oh , long may you wave 

We are home of the free

Because of the brave. 

I honor my country

With colors so true

The stars and the stripes

Of red, white, and blue.
