Juneteenth Today

Happy Juneteenth to everyone.

Juneteenth is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the emancipation of enslavedAfrican Americans. Juneteenth marks the anniversary of the announcement of General Order No. 3 by Union Army general Gordon Granger on June 19, 1865, proclaiming freedom for enslaved people in Texas.[7] Originating in Galveston, the holiday has since been celebrated annually on June 19 in various parts of the United States, often broadly celebrating African-American culture. (Source: Wikipedia)

Happy 4th of July is coming and we celebrate it with a party at our house-a tradition forever and ever it seems.

We love our flag and our country. America is a vigorous democratic republic—the freest and least prejudiced country of this or any time–problems yes, but we are resourceful and grow better with every challenge met.

God is with us.

He reveals deep and hidden things;
    he knows what lies in darkness,
    and light dwells with him.
Daniel 2:22
