This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. ~Elmer Davis
Where liberty dwells, there is my country. ~Benjamin Franklin
This, then, is the state of the union: free and restless, growing and full of hope. So it was in the beginning. So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith. ~Lyndon B. Johnson
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck
Happy Independence Day, all ~

That last quote is so perfect (and fitting with your photo). I've never heard it before but I truly agree with you. Sometimes, from growing up here, I take that freedom for granted and I hope that today I'll remind myself what it truly means to be free. Thanks Kate!
