The American dream is about spirit, envisioning possibilities and the freedom to reach for them. Above is a drawing of the Main Street Philharmonic in WDW…where so many dreams have begun. Hope you all had a peaceful and memorable weekend. – Michele Bedigian

INDEPENDENCE DAY In the year of 1776
That paper was decreed –
They were tired of oppression
And wanted to be freedThey wrote a Declaration
So the whole world would see –
This was, “the home of the brave
And the land of the free”They signed that piece of parchment
The leaders of this land –
Knowing, divided they would fall
But, together they could standA new world lay before them
Untamed from shore to shore –
They swore they would protect it
If it meant going to war

Battles have been fought –
And many lives have been lost –
So sad something so basic
Has such a high, high cost

‘Seems freedom is a luxury
There’s some would bind us all –
Like then, together, we can stand
But divided, we will fall

More than two hundred years
Have past by since that day
That each of us celebrate
In our own different way

We should be proud and thankful
Pay our share of the cost –
Not take freedom for granted
For it easily could be lost
