Celebrating the birth of our nation. The land of immigrants. We are all immigrants to this land called the United States of America. Maybe one day we can again be united as a nation based on love not hate, of acceptance not rejection, of diversity not prejudice, of inclusion not exclusion. We can all work towards reuniting this land of opportunity for ALL not just for some. One can hope!
a Facebook memory from 7/4/2015
Happy 4th of July.
Raise a prayer of thanksgiving for the freedoms we inherited, the opportunities available to us and the democracy in which we live. Today we celebrate our diverse Country – a melting pot of many cultures, beliefs, religions, etc. Give thanks for our diversity with an open heart and mind. It is that diversity that makes us strong.
Some call me son, brother, godfather, cousin, uncle, writer, author, veteran, and friend. That may be true, but mostly I am me - a unique human being who has run the race of life through many different forests, down many roaring rivers and along some tangled paths. All in all it has been a good journey of growth and expansion of self. I am a lover of family, animals, food, laughs, poetry, books, compassionate people and chasing the light.
My first journey into writing is Quiet Thoughts: Written Reflections. It is a book of poems and reflections - a small flicker of light into my life journey.
I currently reside in Emmaus, PA and enjoy all that the Lehigh Valley has to offer.
