Happy 4th of July!
Let every nation known, whether it wishes us well or ill, we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty. ~ President John F Kennedy
We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" ~ President Thomas Jefferson
Also, Happy Birthday Malia Obama!
And.. I thought the Iranian election was a good thing to remember today. Especially since, ya know, the Founding Fathers had some French assistance during the Revolutionary War.. perhaps we could be the French for Iran. I don't know. Bon Jovi has a new awesome video, a new take on the classic Stand By Me, in collaboration with Andy Madadian, an exiled Persian man.. (singing in Farsi) I got it from my friend Marg's blog: Reading Adventures. I love this: (But I love Jon.. so.. ) You can download it for free here, in support of the Iranian people.
