America the beautiful





Here we are, fellow citizens,
Living in the greatest country on earth
Let not our pride in that fact cause us to fall
God made us great, and humility and justice will keep us great.
Think right, do right and be thankful you can write.
Please use commments for 'What makes America great?'

Thank you Jayleigh for the awesome picture of Kodiak,
the most beautiful face in the dog world!

Deana said...

Great words, great pics. I especially loved your sunset.

Michele sent me today....you have a very nice site set up.

David said...

oops I forgot the sunset pic was sent to me by Bill gates ( as part of windows) it had no photog credit - so I assume its some Janitor working in the basement of Microsoft that took it.

What makes this country great is that we can disagree on "what's right", you know? What you think is right may or may not be completely different than what I think is right..BUT, what makes America truly GREAT is that we can say all that and believe in the Bill of Rights and The Constitution that states we have "inaliable rights" given to us by our Founding Fathers! YEAH!!!
A Belated Happy Fourth To You David...LET FREEDOM RING!

Here from Michele tonight!

Each picture is more stunning than the next. My favourites are the first and last.

While shopping for birthday party presents, my daughter and I stopped to watch the sunset. The colour was very similar to your last picture.

I really didn't want to take her with me...but I am so glad I did. We got to share something beautiful.
