Tomorrow's the 4th of July

Tomorrow we will celebrate our independence. All of us need to be thankful for what we have and try hard to make sure it remains as it is. Our fore fathers fought hard to gain our freedom and we should work hard to maintain it.

Pray for the President and the Leaders of the whole world to make the right decisions. We are in perilous times with so much going on in the world. Write to your senators and representatives and let them know how you want to be represented. Keep our freedom.

In researching for a historical novel, I have been impressed by what the men and women were searching for. They wanted a life that would be peaceful and free from tyranny. They wanted their children to grow up in a free country. Don't we want the same today? We should treasure our freedom and remember we did not always have it.

I'm going to write an article about Besty Ross and the flag for the Examiner. She must have been a quilter. She sacrificed a lot to make that first flag. Let's remember the freedom we have and have a wonderful 4th of July.
