That these United Colonies are, and of Right, ought to be, Free,and are, Independent States!
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, One nation, Under GOD, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all!!!!!!!!!!!!
The decoration of Independence was adopted by Congress, July 4th,1776.
Drafted by Thomas Jefferson,between June 11th and June 28th, 1776, the Decoration of Independence is at once the nation's most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson's most enduring monument. Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American people.
When in the course of Human events, it becomes necessary, for the people ,to dissolive the bands, which have connected them, with one another, and to assure among the power of the earth, the separate and equal station, to which the Law of Nature and Natures God entitled them, a decent respect, to the opions of mankind, requires that they should declare the course which impel them to the separation.
We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide the common defense, promote the general welfare ,the Blessings of Liberty, to ourselves and our posterity, do obtain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America,
The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his office during the term of four years.

And Sissy Dog and myself. I hope you have a safe and happy 4th of July celebration. If you travel, God speed. If you are at home, be safe and surrounded with love ones. Remember firework safety and also stay cool. We, here in Missouri, are under a heat warning. It is to be 97 or so today ,so , keep our beloved pets safe, lots of water and bring them in inside where it is cool. Sissy hates the fireworks, so don't leave your pets unattended during this trying time. I just want every one to be safe and happy and have a 4th of July that we all will remember for many years to come.
Come by anytime for a tour. I will leave the lights on and Sissy Dog will meet you all with a jump and a kiss
GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!!
