Happy Independance (http://www.archives.gov/national-archives-experience/charters/declaration.html) Day to my fellow Americans... Coming to you all from the Bunny who lives in the birthplace of our liberties... Philadelphia! :)

231 years ago...on July 4th, 1776
This great nation, the United States of America,
In a struggle for what was right and free,
Was proudly born...
May we celebrate that precious freedom
For which our forbears fought so bravely...
The freedom that is inherent
In the stars and Stripes, our revered flag...
Celebrate Freedom
This Fourth of July!


May we all continue to have "..life, liberty, & the pursuit for happiness!"

"Fourth of July" (1776) was when the United States got their Independence from Britain. ;) But this thread can be for any country's independence day! :D

07-05-2007, 12:02:33
"Any country's independence day"? Uhm...well, perhaps National Hoilday or Commemoration Day are better expressions in some cases. Some countries never had to break free of another countrys influence, you see ;)

Oh...and I LOVE them pictures, da Escape :luv: Thanks for sharing :)

I hope for an end to all the wars of the world, so the military men and women can return to their homes, and their countries, and let there be peace.

And a special thought for my brother who is currently deployed in Afghanistan. Come home safely!! :hug2::)

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch, be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give him a hearty welcome then
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The men will cheer and the boys will shout
The ladies they will all turn out
And we'll all feel gay,
When Johnny comes marching home.

The old church bell will peal with joy
Hurrah! Hurrah!
To welcome home our darling boy
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The village lads and lassies say
With roses they will strew the way,
And we'll all feel gay
When Johnny comes marching home.

Get ready for the Jubilee,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
We'll give the hero three times three,
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The laurel wreath is ready now
To place upon his loyal brow
And we'll all feel gay
When Johnny comes marching home.

From my mother's sleep I fell into the State,
And I hunched in its belly till my wet fur froze.
Six miles from earth, loosed from its dream of life,
I woke to black flak and the nightmare fighters.
When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.

I should've put them in the right chronological order,1)When Johnny Comes Marching Home 2) Flanders Field 3) Death of the Ball Turret Gunner

8th of November (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7EPlqvMAfU)

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

I'd like to take a moment to honor all the courageous veterans -
young and old, active duty or not, past and present, fallen or still with us -
for giving their time, their lives, their everything, for their country. Not just the veterans from the USA, but from around the world. Thank you for serving your country to protect the rest of us. Thank you not just today, but every day.
