Happy Birthday America !!!!

  "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life,  liberty and the pursuit of happiness."  

Independence Day.   Passing  of the Declaration of Independence .   Our freedom to 'have certain inalienable rights'.     I am proud to be an American, I still salute the flag  hand on my heart,  I still say  'one nation under God,'  and I still get a lump in my throat when I hear the Star Spangled Banner..    My country. !!!   and proud of it.. 
off my soap box .. flag in hand.    BJ       


  1. Me too! Proud and lucky! Happy 4th Barbra!

  2. I had a quilted "flag" almost just like this one hanging in my quilt shop - I think I finally sold it to a customer. I wish I still had it!

  3. Nancy you probably had it because ti was a pattern, and I made this one.. I still like it. BJ

  4. Gorgeous flag and I too still respect my home country enough to also put hand over heart, to say the pledge of allegiance, to mist up over the Star Spangled Banner. Can't say the pride is necessarily always there these days, though.

  5. I know what your saying but it's something that's been with me all my life and right now our country is in trouble. But I have that hope it will be as strong as ever again. (even if I'm not here to see it. ) BJ


Your comments are very much appreciated and I'll be returning the visit. !! BJ
