This July a new baby will join my family on or near the 23rd. A new birth is exciting. The prep for a little one to enter and be cared for is all encompassing. The tiny person will take over his or hers whole household.
As I ponder this new birth and the birth of our nation, they seem akin in that our ancestors fought and gave all to the creation of a government, bill of rights and constitution. They acted with the same need as the young parents in my family, who have created a nest where there are rules, struggles and compromises. The parents work together to ensure all is well for their children.
I think that was what our founding fathers planned for our country.
