Friday Inspiration: Quotes About American Independence Day, aka 4th of July

Happy 4th of July One and All! I sincerely hope each of you is having a great 4th!

We generally have a fairly quiet one, usually just heading to see the Fireworks show put on in downtown on the Riverwalk…we’re lucky because we live so close we can just walk from home to the show, so no fighting traffic!

This week I have chosen to put the American Independence Day Celebration front and center with quotes about the US Independence!

But First:

US Star Spangled Banner

“Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.”

— George Washington

“Happily for America, happily, we trust, for the whole human race, they pursued a new and more noble course. They accomplished a revolution which has no parallel in the annals of human society.”

— James Madison

“This land is your land, this land is my land, from California, to the New York Island, from the redwood forest, to the Gulf Stream waters, this land was made for you and me….”

— Woody Guthrie
