"I know why families were created, with all their imperfections.
They humanize you. They are made to make you forget yourself occasionally, so that the beautiful balance of life is not destroyed." Anais Nin

Happy Independence Day
"Objects of the most stupendous magnitude, measures in which the lives and liberties of millions, born and unborn are most essentially interested, are now before us. We are in the very midst of revolution, the most complete, unexpected, and remarkable of any in the history of the world."
- John Adams -
(an excerpt from his final, passionate speech given July 1, 1776 . . . the day before the signing of the Declaration of Independence)
