A Nation's Strength

Not gold, but only man can make
A people great and strong;
Men who, for truth and honor's sake,
Stand fast and suffer long.

Brave men who work while others sleep,
Who dare while others fly--
Thy build a nation's pillars deep
And lift them to the sky.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

How do you like our Patriotic header?  Ann from Zoolatry designed it for us and, with everything going on with Dad's heart procedure, we FORGOT to change it for 4th of July.  At least we remembered now!!
