Heat or no heat, I am looking forward to the BBQ and relaxing in gratitude to our founding mothers and fathers who birthed with blood, sweat, tears and sacrifice the miracle of this, the greatest country on earth, the longest running Consititutional Republic in the world, the first and only to acknowledge that we are endowed with inalienable rights that can not be abridged by man,..the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Now, like Franklin said to a lady in a crowd, who, at the close of the Constitutional Convention, called out, "Mr. Franklin! What kind of a government have you given us?"
"A Republic, madam, if you can hold on to it!"
Let's hope we can hold onto it!
