Everett Parade and TEA

A great day and a great way to celebrate the founding of our great nation!

I joined the TEA party folks in their march

July 4th 044 July 4th 048 July 4th 058

But we had many other great groups in this parade too. The First Cav, The Everett Aquasoxs, and the US Marines just to name a few.

with speeches and music and great people and ideals and a love of freedom and the understanding that all can and will be lost without due diligence.

Lets not lose what we have inherited from the sacrifice of so many. Lets fight to save liberty and remember, As long as there is freedom anywhere there is hope everywhere.
