Our Lives, Our Fortunes, Our Sacred Honor

The Fourth of July is for me a holiday about family and friends as much as about where we are. All the cultural, political, and historical events that have combined to create this time and place are a part of each of us; our greatest shared inheritance is a spirit of generous optimism. May it always be so. Our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor--one is as indistinguishable from the other as yours is from mine. It's good to be here and it's good to know you.


Viola Jaynes captures the spirit of today here. I hope you'll read this beautiful post.

  3. Beautiful! Happy fourth (again). I have always loved those, not sure what they're called but have always loved them. They make me think of huge houses in the south.
