Flags And Flowers - Missoula, Montana

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing; it was here first."

- Mark Twain (1835-1910)

On this Independence Day, it's good to remember and to be thankful for the countless many who contribute(d) to freedom.


  1. Today we watched Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. Wow, there are some powerful lines in that movie and oh, yes, we should 'hold our liberty up in front of our faces and look at it with awe,because we have the freedom to think, speak, live! and we should NEVER forget those who fought for what we have!'

    Hope you are have a blessed Independence Day!

    1. Oh, funny - we watched it again just a couple weekends ago, and we were also impressed anew by some of the lines, especially in light of election campaigning. It's one of my all-time favourite movies that I think should be required viewing before every opening season of Congress.


Your thoughts, please?
