Was He There?
We attended a Fourth of July Celebration hosted at the consulate here in Chennai by the U.S. Consulate General. Met a lot of interesting people who have made their careers the service of their county.
Was our new president there? There was an amazing likeness on the celebration cake.
There was a life sized rendition for a photo op.
Most important we were there and it was another year of celebrating an important holiday. We have probably spent over fifty July fourths together. We have enjoyed the company of good friends on this day and always the gathering in of family to mark the birth of our nation. In the fourth grade I learned to sing all four verses of the national anthem and it was then that parents and teachers instilled in me a deep love of this land - this beautiful nation that was brought forth to give all a pure freedom.
Let's not loose the progress we have made and let's get better everyday with seeing that freedom is ALWAYS extended to ALL.
