"We on this continent should never forget that men first crossed the Atlantic
not to find soil for their ploughs but to secure liberty for their souls."
~Robert J. McCracken

We are celebrating freedom here in the wooded hills today with chicken and veggie shish kabobs made on the barbie, potato salad, green salad and berries for dessert.

The United States was founded on basic freedoms which have slowly but surely been getting whittled down. The biggest threat now isn't crazy dictators, but lack of consciousness and domination of the Corporate sector. The corporation is amassing huge amounts of power granted to them by our leaders.

"Freedom is the oxygen of the soul."
~Moshe Dayan

Each of us can wield our power against this mega monster by voting and making choices that support basic human rights and freedom.

Freedom to grow our own food from seeds, raise honey bees and use rainwater if we choose to.

Happy 4th of July!!

"Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves."
~Abraham Lincoln
