We the People of the United States….
Yesterday was a great day of festivities with the grandchildren. We had a cook out, they went and saw their uncle perform in a concert, and we wound up the day watching fireworks. Creekside Park in Archdale provided an excellent display of illuminating fire-flowers and resounding booms seen by thousands in the park and surrounding neighborhoods. I took along Key Rey and Than Naw Tu because there is nothing like watching fire-works through the eyes of a refugee.
Two documents from history should accompany this post, and some pictures.
Preamble to the Constitution: We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence,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.
“Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me: I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
