......Born Free

"Under the law of nature, all men are born free,
 every one comes into the world with a right
to his own person, which includes the liberty
of moving and using it at his own will.
This is what is called personal liberty, and
is given him by the Author."
~Thomas Jefferson
Very soon we'll be celebrating our
country's independence. That's been on
my mind these past few days, thus the
theme of my paintings, and,  my choice
reading material.  It has occurred to me, that
we Americans have been taking this
 liberty/freedom we have for granted.
Seems we've forgotten as a nation how
to be thankful
 and who it is we need to be  thanking.
Have a blessed week......Dee Dee
