Happy Independence Day 2009: A Poem

For those of you in or from the United States, I hope you enjoy a wonderful day with family and/or friends.
This year, I took a little time to reflect on the holiday and wrote a poem that I wanted to share.
Happy Independence Day!

How will you celebrate the 4th?
We’re headed to Cheyenne, Wyoming to spend time with Lynn and Kevin and Krista (who are visiting Cheyenne from Montana). We’re very excited to see them.
P.S. This is the first time I’ve posted something in my handwriting from my tablet. It’s also the first time I’ve shared a poem with the world at large the same day I wrote it.
What do you think?

    Jon, that is a beautiful poem! My grandfather served in WWII, my dad served in Vietnam. I hope that You & Carrie have a wonderful 4th of July!!!!!

    Nice poem Jonathan.
    Although we in South Africa do not celebrate Independence Day, my mother celebrated her 79th birthday today.
    Great Day all around!

      Thank-you! I never stopped writing… guess I just stopped sharing it as openly or as much… hard to be noticed, or have the words feel important, in a big, noisy world – but still will share and learn how to make it most beneficial for others and still rewarding for me.

      Happy Independence Day 2012!

      Freedom is the root of all other things. With freedom comes everything (including lazyness or the ability to build skyscrapers). What did you do for independence day 2012?
