A Star-Spangled Monument

Washington Monument and American Flag

The Washington Monument with the stars and stripes waving.

Today is Independence Day, and what better image to bring you than of a structure celebrating one of the founding fathers of our great nation and our first president, with the stars and stripes waving gloriously next to it.

Here are a few quotes from George Washington that I couldn’t help sharing:

“The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon.”

“Observe good faith and justice toward all nations. Cultivate peace and harmony with all.”

Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.”

Let us pause and remember that without patriots such as George Washington and the brave members of our military who have served throughout the years, we would not enjoy the freedom our great country offers today.
