HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA

Independence Day honors the birthday of the United States of America and the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It’s a day of picnics and patriotic parades, a night of concerts and fireworks, and a reason to fly the
American flag.
Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the nation’s most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson’s most enduring monument. Here, in exalted and unforgettable phrases, Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American people. The political philosophy of the Declaration was not new; its ideals of individual liberty had already been expressed by John Locke and the Continental philosophers. What Jefferson did was to summarize this philosophy in “self-evident truths” and set forth a list of grievances against the King in order to justify before the world the breaking of ties between the colonies and the mother country.

                       
I am your Flag. I have been kicked, trampled, burned, and shot full of holes.
I have fought battles, but I prefer the untroubled air of a world at peace.
I am your Flag. I represent the freedom of humanity, and I shall fly high, thundering in silence for the whole world to hear.
My gentle rustling in the breeze sounds out the warning to all who would bury me forever that below stands a population dedicated to liberty.
For those who have perished for my right to freedom of flight, for those who will die, and indeed for those who will live, I stand as a symbol of freedom-loving people.
I have been carried into battle in faraway lands, always for the cause of freedom.
I am blood-stained, torn, and many times wearied and saddened by the thousands who have paid the supreme sacrifice.
Do not let it all be for nothing. Tell me the brave have died for a worthwhile cause. Be proud of what I represent, and display me for all to see.
Whether you call me “Old Glory,” Stars and Stripes,” or “Star Spangled Banner,” I shall fly forever as a symbol of your freedom, as I did for your ancestors, and I shall for your heirs.
~By James M. Fillmore

FEAST DAY OF THE NATIVITY OF ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST
Saint John the Baptist, son of Zachary and Elizabeth, is the greatest of the prophets. He prepared the people of Israel for the arrival of the Messiah, and therefore he is called the Precursor of Christ. He is also known as “Baptist” because he baptized Jesus Christ in the waters of the river Jordan.
This feast dates back to the third century, for Saint Augustine (354-430) said that it was based upon a tradition of the Fathers.
