Fourth of July quotes and poems: Stay Joyful, Enjoy 2014 Fireworks! (By sheknows.com)

 


Celebrating Independence Day

Fourth of July isn't all about barbecues and fireworks. It's also about freedom, liberty and the birthday of our country. Teach your kids about the history of Independence Day by reading books, quotes, poems and other anecdotes.

Fourth of July quotes

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
~ The Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776
I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward for evermore.
~ John Adams
You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.
~ Erma Bombeck

Freedom quotes

One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, One Nation evermore!
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
America is much more than a geographical fact. It is a political and moral fact — the first community in which men set out in principle to institutionalize freedom, responsible government, and human equality.
~ Adlai Stevenson
In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.
~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
~ Thomas Paine

Fourth of July poems

I Hear America Singing

By Walt Whitman
I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear,
Those of mechanics, each one singing his as it should be blithe and strong,
The carpenter singing his as he measures his plank or beam,
The mason singing his as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work,
The boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck,
The shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench, the hatter singing as he stands,
The wood-cutter’s song, the ploughboy’s on his way in the morning, or at noon intermission or at sundown,
The delicious singing of the mother, or of the young wife at work, or of the girl sewing or washing,
Each singing what belongs to him or her and to none else,
The day what belongs to the day — at night the party of young fellows, robust, friendly,
Singing with open mouths their strong melodious songs.

The Landlord's Tale. Paul Revere's Ride
By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.

Schemes: Call For World Peace Business Act No. 3, May 1 to May 31, 2014!

 

Schemes are sugar-coated pills,
They look young and yummy,
They dress up as baits
on a fishing pole,
Those who are caught
are unfortunate,
Decent fish swim in deep waters,
They are not easily fooled
by freely offered artificial treats.

Merry Christmas Mom © Mary Butto

 
For all of the presents
You put under the tree,
For all of the times
You picked up after me...

For all of the times
That you tucked me in tight
And we stayed up to talk
Long into the night

For all of the days
I was feeling so down
And the times that you turned
To a smile my frown

For the cookies you baked
And the stockings you stuffed,
For the cuts that you healed
And the pillows you fluffed...

For the time that you took
Off the training wheels
For the nights that you made me
My favorite meals

For the years throughout
Elementary school
For knowing the right thing
Isn’t always what’s cool

For putting up with
Those preteen years
For making it through
All the laughs and the tears

For all of the days
That you loved me so much
Even during the times
That I made it so tough…

For all of the memories
We have already shared
For the future for which
We cannot be prepared

For being there for that one-year-old boy
Who sat in the house and sucked on his thumb
For working so hard at being his mom
And making that boy into the man I’ve become
Look back on all that we have been through
And look at me now mom, how far I have come

For all of the times I’ll never forget
Merry Christmas to you Mom
Here’s to the memories
We haven’t had yet

Merry Christmas…Love, Nick

Happy 3 Year Birthday to JP Blog Here, and Keep In Mind of Our 12 Years of Pain and Loss Due to 9/11/2001 Event.


image credit: google.com
today is only one day apart  September eleventh, 2013, about 12 years from 9/11 in 2001, when terrorists attacked New York City Twin Towers and killed thousands of innocent people, today, we recall our past and mourn those who died due to the rise of evil power and the persistence of American patriotism and freedom, let's not forget this important event, pray to those who suffered and those family members or relatives who survived but felt the pain of loss...we shall cherish more about the peace, love, and daily comfort we have today, Thanks to former president George Walker Bush and his efforts, thanks to our military soldiers who fight and continue to battle for our beloved country, God bless America! 
The poem below has nothing to do with 9/11, but is is a sad reality check to highlight even today, hunger, natural disasters, and ignorance, they still post as threats to our everyday living and faith, we must act by being a good citizens first, encourage our friends, people we know to love peace, and stop violence and indifference to children and to  those who are needy...Thanks for reading...Bless You All! 

it's hard to describe how I feel right now
I want to explain it but I don't know how
I cannot believe it comes to this
it's our world, not just his
#
no matter how hard we try
the man can never hear us cry
we could scream and yell
but he is in his heaven while we're in our hell
#
The little boy wants his acceptance
but the man keeps his distance
the little boy has so many "whys?"
but the man won't open his eyes
#
The little girl just wants her dad
but the man doesn't understand
the little girl just wants to be kissed and hugged
but all the man does is shrug
#
The woman just wants him
But the light is getting dim
She loves him with all her heart
But the man keeps tearing it apart
#
no matter how hard we try
he can never hear us cry
we could scream and yell
but he is in his heaven while we're in our hell
#
I want to know one more thing
with my last bit of strength
is this it? is this the end?
