Good Afternoon All,
Well, here we are once again, preparing to welcome and celebrate the 4th of July. One of the most memorable accomplishments of Freedom in our time and time immemorial. We are so fortunate to be able to do this with Family, friends, loved ones, those we remember with love and gratitude. We are truly Blessed. I hope you will not mind that I want to share with you a poignant message, if you will, that was shared by Pete Sweeney. The 4th is one of those days that brings a tear to my eyes, a major tug at my heart and a so overwhelming sense of Pride as I watch the Parades go by and remember the sacrifices, as well, that guard and protect our Freedoms, ” One Nation Under God….”. The picture below is simple, it holds the basis of our beliefs as a Nation, the strength of our convictions and beliefs, the freedoms our Country offers to those willing and wanting to embrace this country. The symbols you see are clear, the ” Declaration of Independence “‘, the Seal and Basis of Our Country, ” We The People ” and a ” Child in Prayer,” the ” Future of our Country. ” The picture was given out, as it happens, from a Catholic Church, St Mary’s, established in 1942, in Manahawkin, New Jersey. I know this church, a stronghold of Faith, Morals and Love of Country. Pete tells us that this picture particularly resonated with the young people in the Community. Amen to that. Please join me in wishing you’ each other and our neighbors, a Happy 4th of July. Yankee Doodle Dandy, indeed. God Bless.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
