HAPPY JULY 4TH!
Here's a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson called "A Nation's Strength" that gives creedence to the Nation's forefathers in the fight for democracy and freedom.....
What makes a nation's pillars high
And its foundations strong?
What makes it might to defy
The foes that round it throng?
It is not gold. Its kingdoms grand
Go down in battle shock;
Its shafts are laid on sinking sand,
Not on abiding rock.
Not gold but only men can make
A people great and strong;
Men who for truth and honor's sake
Stand fast and suffer long.
Have a great one guys and gals!
