Let’s celebrate the privilege of living in a land of freedom and independence.  May this freedom and independence be preserved and never exchanged for licentiousness and the lust for financial security.

“Order without liberty and liberty without order are equally destructive.”  ~Theodore Roosevelt

“Liberty means responsibility.  That is why most men dread it.”  ~George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman, “Maxims: Liberty and Equality,” 1905
