A “Fourth Of July” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

In the Declaration of Independence, our founding fathers made a statement that is the heart and soul of our great country, a statement that makes America the greatest country in the world –“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.” There has never been a time in my lifetime that these words ever were more important. We will find a cure. We will provide equal opportunity and eliminate the barriers to that and America will once again be a place where its citizens can pursue and find Happiness.

More American than Mom’s apple pie
Is the FREEDOM upon which we rely.
It comes with a price –
Blood, sweat and sacrifice.
Remember that this Fourth Of July.

Have a great holiday, everyone.
