I will be busy tomorrow, but didn't want to forget this very special birthday (y)

"We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

Here's a poem I wrote last year for July 4th:


On the fourth day of July, in the year of 1776,
Our forefathers got together and came up with a fix.
The plan they developed was freedom for the USA,
No longer ruled by Great Britain we now can move our own way.

John Adams, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and a few more,
Came together to draw up an document and lay down the score.
Freedom for the 13 colonies was the theme for this day,
No more control from Great Britain, now our children can play.

On the eleventh day of September, in the year of 2001,
Our freedom was violated, a gray cloud covered the Sun.
Though thousands lost their lives on this dark day of doom,
We can think back to July 4,1776 to erase all the gloom.

It's now the year of 2006, on the fourth day of July,
Our flag bears 50 stars and Old Glory is flying high.
Celebrations across America will honor this mighty day,
Barbecues, fireworks and yes our children will play.
~ GoJo
