Put them on your phone
Put them in your mind
Keep them in your Heart
Live them throughout your life
Share them with your first and last breath
They are the Hope of the world

 

Now as to the word “men,” if you believe it was just an all-inclusive plural pronoun or that the founders really only believed that men and only men were created equal and only they were endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights (rights which cannot be taken, surrendered, bartered or sold), does not diminish its inherent and inerrant truths!

“For there is no respect of persons with God.”

Romans 2:11 King James Version (KJV)

WE, that hold these truths are every man, woman and child the world over. Our republic, our form of government put them into writing in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America put into writing, the defense and preservation of these truths! WE the People are, the Hope of the world!

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men (every man, woman and child) 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. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men (every man, woman and child), deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Excerpt from: The Declaration of Independence, 1776

Of all the holidays I love among all the rest
It is the Fourth of July— that I love best
Yes, I confess
And I profess
There are many different leaves upon this Our-tree
And WE are each one person; one people; One country
Oh, yes I love all about this day it’s true
But what I love the most is you!

 

America the Beautiful was written by Katharine Lee Bates and composed by Samuel A. Ward, “America the Beautiful” is one of the most well-known and beloved American patriotic songs. The song celebrates the natural beauty and the “patriot dream” of the United States.

Them that feign the words or refrain from the deeds of true words spoken, do not diminish the true!

Oh, Messenger— Be the Message and if not then still,
Let it Be Written;
Let it Be Read;
Let it Be Spoken and
Let it Be Lived

HAPPY 240th 4th of July!

Good Morning USA,

What’s offending, You today?

 

Is it that these three, barely exist

or that a remnant, still persist?

Is it that WE do NOT know each other

or WE are impatient, for it all to smother?

Is it that WE were ever united

or the fire has been ignited?

 

From 1776 and 1789, for 239 and 226 years respectively

Through hell and back, these three have stood collectively

Are all just separate relics of the past, WE’d just soon forget

Are all meaningless scraps of paper and cloth, We surely and sorely regret?

 

Good Morning USA,

What’s offending, You today?

 

Is it that WE’ve traded, for all our wants and security

or that we deserve NOT— Life, Happiness and Liberty?

 

Good Morning USA,

What’s offending, You today?

Image of Bartholdi’s original terracotta statue

   How would you like to have a treasure in your hands?

   How would you like to have a mystery, a treasure, a miracle so incredible and there was no one or few that even know about it? What would you do? Would you shout it out from the highest mountain and let it reverberate from sea to shining sea? I would! So did the founders of the United States of America when Liberty was written in the Declaration of Independence, published July 4th, 1776. Did you know it almost never happened? Did you know the Constitution of the United States in 1789 almost never happened? Did you know a French sculptor named Frédéric Bartholdi wanted to present a colossal monument to the United States from France for the bicentennial, July 4th, 1876? Did you know that it did not happen because, there was not enough interest and certainly not enough money to make it happen? He persisted anyway and finally, ‘She’ was dedicated on October 28, 1886.

   Did you know that the Statue of Liberty underwent a 30 million dollar face-lift’ in 2012, only to be closed due to hurricane Sandy? Did you know the statue was not damaged, but the park and the statue has been closed and is scheduled to re-re-open again for a re-re-dedication on July 4th, 2013? Did you know this would mark Her 127th year since She was dedicated and Our 237th year, since We the People began?

   How would you like to know that an original 21″ Bartholdi bronze statue might exist and has been hidden, unseen and unknown since it was made by the sculptor 129 years ago, referenced in a U.S. Patent that he made to drum up support and funds, so that WE the People could have this symbol of our, “Liberty, Enlightening the World?”

Is this the “missing” Bartholdi statue?

   Would you believe that I wrote a post on this blog: https://ourladyliberty.wordpress.com/2009/06/17/lady-liberty-birth-of-an-idea/ in 2009 and recently (2013), I received comments from a man (Eric of Sarasota, FL) that has such a statue? Would you believe that all he wants to do is to share this statue with the world? What a story, what a book, what a movie; what a miracle this could be to all of US, WE the People!

   What does Liberty mean to you? What would you do for Liberty? What can you do? Excellent question? Let us each start here!

   Without being able to absolutely verify the authorship of the following poem, as it seems latent with controversy, though it may have been written in the 1700’s, I will quote it simply as: -author Unknown-

One Man Awake 

One man awake awakens another,
The second man wakens his next door neighbor,
 
And three awake can rouse the town, 
and turn the whole place upside down.
 
And many awake can raise such a fuss, 
That it finally awakens the rest of us. 
 
One man up with dawn in his eyes – multiplies. 
 

-author Unknown-

   Share this post with everyone you know and by any means available. Eric of Sarasota, FL is a real and credible person. I have his email address. We have spoken by phone. See his comments to me at the above referenced blog post. I am respecting his privacy and helping to protect his treasure. Let US, WE the People awaken to awaken “the rest of us!” Let US each 1 reach 1 of US, WE the People and help keep the beacon of Liberty Enlightening the World!” 

   Contact/comment me for more information.

   She is in your hands!
