I know. . .
we are at that part of the Summer
where every thing speeds up very quickly. . .
The age-old cliche says
ONCE YOU GET TO THE 4th OF JULY THE SUMMER IS OVER !
If it’s not true
it sure does often feel like it. . .
and even though there’s no stopping it,
maybe between the get-togethers
the grilling out
the street fairs and carnivals
the F I R E W O R K S
maybe we could just pause for more than a moment
to reflect on the Skit Guys video or
the f a m i l y outings. . .
to recognize what we don’t always notice
but somehow always seem to expect:
That The United States of America
or our Families
are universes a part of being perfect. . .
The Family is a microcosm of our Country. . .
our World, isn’t it?
We can see that during a family reunion or a
4th of July Picnic
where we bring a bunch of people

t o g e t h e r
ESPECIALLY AFTER NOT GETTING TOGETHER LAST YEAR
. . .there’s talk of this one
and of course always THAT one
and yet when it comes time for the
f a m i l y p i c t u r e
there they are
shoulder to shoulder
smiling and cheesing it for the photo op
by on the count of THREE
F A M I L Y R E U N I O N
which is really similar to how it is when
O U R C O U N T R Y
can literally be on the verge of a civil war over
and all out disagreements and differences. . .
and then there’s a 9/11
a tragic accident
a natural disaster
an attack on our national freedom and safety
B A M
we come together;
We are not perfect families
or a perfect Nation
but our great imperfections
somehow put things into the most
perfect of perceptions
when we need to be together
Maybe that’s the greatest Definition
of our own personal
Declaration of Independence:
We are NOT undefeated
but we are UN-DEFEATABLE
We come together
not as we should
not as we could
not as we would
but as we actually D O
