|My grandfather's WW1 poster|
|And daughter as diplomatic pouches|
|Flag that was flown on the day of my husband's retirement now waving in Kansas skies|
It always brings me back to how scary it must have been. To break from the source of your food and luxury could not have been easy. Do you think we could have done it with the attitude of today? Believe me, the founding fathers did NOT get along all that well. They had directly opposite ideas on many things. From Quakers who opposed bloodshed to backwoods Virginians who had hacked it out in the French and Indian war.
I am thankful that they had the courage to work together and figure it out.
Happy Birthday USA!
