4 July 2022 Lewis Family Gathering–Brats, Burgers and Cousins!

This afternoon we joined the rest of the Lewis family at Uncle Jeffrey’s in Alpine for a 4th of July feast.  Oh, what fun!  Oh what family!

“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4th, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics were kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.”
– Erma Bombeck

“We on this continent should never forget that men first crossed the Atlantic not to find soil for their ploughs but to secure liberty for their souls.”
— Robert J. McCracken

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
–Nelson Mandela

“True independence and freedom can only exist in doing what`s right.”
– Bringham Young

“What was important wasn’t the fireworks, it was that we were together this evening, together in this place, looking up into the sky at the same time.”
— Banana Yoshimoto
