Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

Long may it wave! Old Glory in Guilford, CT 
 
Two hundred and forty three years ago in Philadelphia America was born. The Declaration of Independence is its birth certificate. An extraordinary document and the extraordinary commitment to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I've just reread it and as always, I am struck by the courage and vision of the founders of the United States. 
 
I'm off on a little adventure, not far from where America was born. I'm bringing my iPad and hope to post pictures while I'm away. Wishes for a bright and sunny Fourth of July and a great weekend.   
 
As always, thanks for visiting. Happy birthday, America!

This is a beautiful flag photo. I would love to just sit in one of the wooden chairs underneath it and watch the world go by. Looks like downtown somewhere.
