Walk with Me

Take a walk in Cole Park today — click here: Walk With Me
 
On this day, the 4th of July, I especially want to remember that our forefathers fought for our freedom– for all of us, in order to form a more perfect union where all are created equal.
 
“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
 
From the Declaration of Independence:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
 
On this day in 1776, we were all immigrants, except, of course, my Native American friends.
 
I’m going to walk in the park to reflect on that, and that we are still forming “a more perfect union.”
 
Perhaps you’d enjoy Sean Patrick Hughes’s post: More Perfect 
 
Walk with me and consider all we’ve been, good and bad, and all we could be as we still strive to be a “more perfect union.”
I know we have more in common than not.
