When the United States declared its independence over 200 years ago, the words were carefully thought out and determined by men of character, high moral conduct and intelligence. The words which have stood the test of time, begin with the title, “We the people.” not “We, the smartest, richest, the most popular, or those who have power.”

We the people, means you and me – the ones who live and work in this country – the ones who cherish the Constitution – those who would die to keep its precepts.

Unfortunately our country has had to fight a tyrant more ferocious than King George III. His name is Satan and he’s made a mockery of our founding fathers in the last few generations. He’s twisted the right to pursue life, liberty and happiness to mean whatever makes you feel good. He’s altered the very core of those ideas to fit what is politically acceptable to everyone.  Thus we are plagued with greed, malice, lack of trust, neighbor fighting against neighbor, turf wars, and scandals in the very government that our founders fought for – and that’s just the beginning.

I love America, even though I don’t like what’s happening to her, I will always take pride in the words of that old document and for the lives that were lost defending its values. Read it to your children on July 4th and explain what our and their freedom really means. They need to know what was so proudly fought for.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

  2. Thank you Kathy! “We the People” should still hold our attention when thinking of our country’s future. Our Founding Fathers wrestled with many issues and needed to find ways to compromise.

      I think that is exactly right. We have lost our ability to solve problems without being willing to compromise. I pray that some of those old habits return. The golden rule is a good place to start!

    You said it well, Kathy! Liberty and justice are still what it is about, and the work and the reward both belong to we, the people. God bless America! J.
