Freedom, I won’t let you down.

I promise not to continue titling my blog posts lyrics from random songs.  Well, I don’t promise.  But, I won’t make a habit out of it.  I don’t think.

My favorite July 4th memory was 5 years ago.  I ran the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta early in the a.m., hopped on the good ‘ol Beechcraft Duke with Kris and flew to Grand Lake.  Only to spend it with two of our closest friends on their completely awesome boat watching completely awesome fireworks and F-14’s fly over.  Life’s not bad.

– Thanks to freedom and the ability of free persons to pursue great things. 

Charles de Gaulle said, “History does not teach fatalism.  There are moments when the will of a handful of free men breaks through determinism and opens up new roads.”

Happy Fourth!

Do you have a favorite 4th memory?

    Yeah, I met Margaret on the fourth of July. Her dad says I lost my independence on Independence Day. Let’s see….that was 38 years ago in 1970.
