"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Independence Day Parade Photos

Fourth...still my sweetie!

See the mountains? That is one main reason I love living here!!!!

Second(standing) Third (sitting). Displaying the goofiness that they always display!

First Responders are always part of the parade!

Notice the man holding the camera? He worked for the paper and try as I might he keep getting in my way:) I guess I need to buy the paper for some great shots!!

Off to the BBQ- Praying that your day is safe and wonderful!

One clearly see why "Fourth is still your sweetie" and also the American flag on her top - a fitting tribute of pride in her country.

She continues to radiate, a testimony of the importance of Neonatal Intesive Care Unit's and equally that of a loving family.

glad 2nd & third share in the day.

Guess the guy with camera tried to take centre stage at every opportunity, however, he missed the importance - that of sincerity - as you rightly portray in your photo's.

Enjoy your BBQ

I forgot to add - I also luv the mountain range backdrop.

We have something in common - a luv of mountains and where I live the mountains retain their importance and beauty.

Enjoy your day
