“A salute to all Nations but Mostly America”

Both of my Grandfathers served in the United States Army. They were both extremely proud Americans who always put their faith in country before all else. Their example instilled a deep sense of Pride in me for my country and it is my honor today to celebrate our Freedom and Independence on an Army Post with my husband.

Thank you to all who have served our great country in one way or another.

I have compiled some photos and inspirational quotes in remembrance of the great minds who have come before us.

“A truly American sentiment recognizes the dignity of labor and the fact that honor lies in honest toil.”
~Grover Cleveland

“I beg you to speak of Woman as you do of the Negro, speak of her as a human being, as a citizen of the United States, as a half of the people in whose hands lies the destiny of this Nation.”
~Susan B. Anthony

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

“An honorable defeat is better than a dishonorable victory.”

“Be fit for more than the thing you are now doing. Let everyone know that you have a reserve in yourself; that you have more power than you are now using. If you are not too large for the place you occupy, you are too small for it.”
~James Garfield

“Honest conviction is my courage; the Constitution is my guide.”
~Andrew Johnson

“Our differences are policies; our agreements, principles.”

“One cool judgment is worth a thousand hasty counsels. The thing to be supplied is light, not heat.”

“America’s present need is not heroics, but healing; not nostrums, but normalcy; not revolution, but restoration; not agitation, but adjustment; not surgery, but serenity; not the dramatic, but the dispassionate; not experiment, but equipoise; not submergence in internationality, but sustainment in triumphant nationality.”
~Warren G. Harding

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb … Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
~Calvin Coolidge

“Neither a wise man or a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.”
~Dwight D Eisenhower

“If we succeed, it will not be because of what we have, but it will be because of what we are; not because of what we own, but, rather because of what we believe.”
~Lyndon B. Johnson

~Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt

“The American dream does not come to those who fall asleep.”
~Richard M. Nixon

“The future doesn’t belong to the fainthearted; it belongs to the brave.”
~Ronald Reagan


“If you live long enough, you’ll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you’ll be a better person. It’s how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.”
~Bill Clinton

“I can hear you, the rest of the world can hear you
and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.”
~George W. Bush

I hope you and your loved ones
have a wonderful 4th of July
and
God Bless America

Thank you for reading.
