Independence Day 2017
Some people don’t like kitties. They say we are too independent. But this post isn’t about that. Today’s Independence Day celebrates the birth of our nation 241 years ago. Wow, that’s a long time ago. We can’t count that high even if we use all our toes.
But never mind. The most important thing is that we kitties feel fortunate to have a home in the USA…the home of the free and the brave. As you celebrate today with your picnics, parades, barbecues and fireworks, please remember and thank all those who fought and continue to fight for our freedom.
And here are a few things to think about today, with gratitude to Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence.
But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.
No government ought to be without censors; and where the press is free no one ever will.
It is always better to have no ideas than false ones; to believe nothing, than to believe what is wrong.
Peace and friendship with all mankind is our wisest policy, and I wish we may be permitted to pursue it.
Have a happy, quiet and save 4th.
