of greatness and legacies on the Fourth of July…

By the time you've read this you are probably soon leaving the house for celebrations tonight or have settled in after the day of celebration or maybe even after a day of work. Whichever it may be I do hope it will be and has been a safe and wonderful 4th of July holiday for you, your friends and family.
In thinking back to that day and time leading up to 07.04.1776, it's no secret that those great people were bound and determined to see our country through the course that they had set for themselves when they declared for our independence.. They were hungry for the outcome they desired and today we are all thankful for their hunger and determination and for their.
We owe a great deal to those founders as well as those that served in the fighting forces that help make it all a reality then and those that continue to serve in harm's way to help keep all that was fought for back then- just as real for us all today.

I know that you have many videos, audios, emails, tweets and facebook messages to come your way this weekend, but I''m thinking these are a couple you haven't seen. I wanted to share these two that I have selected for you that are well worth watching today and clinging to- well into the future.

The first is a audio/video depicting the true story of our National Anthem. It is quite a history listen that I'm sure than many haven't heard before.



The second is the wonderful Les Brown who speaks about unleashing the greatness within you. When I hear this I am reminded of that desire that our founding fathers had to break free. They were not going to be denied.

I hope that when you watch this you will not only be reminded of their greatness but for the greatness that you have within you. I hope this message is something that you needed to hear today. I hope and want the best for all of us.


Just like our founding fathers back then…

“If you want a thing bad enough to go out and fight for it, to work day and night for it, to give up your time, your peace and your sleep for it…

if all that you dream and scheme is about it, and life seems useless and worthless without it…

if you gladly sweat for it and fret for it and plan for it and lose all your terror of the opposition for it…

if you simply go after that thing you want with all of your capacity, strength and sagacity,  faith, hope and confidence and stern pertinacity…

if neither cold, poverty, famine, nor gout, sickness nor pain, of body and brain,  can keep you away from the thing that you want…

if dogged and grim you beseech and beset it, with the help of God, you will get it!”

—Les Brown

Thanks for letting me share this today.
