Who would ever have thought that this young upstart, this new America, those rag-tag colonies could ever defeat the Royal British Army and Navy? They were a huge and old country that outfitted an experienced army. And yet, a few men made the difference.
It is that difference that gives you and me the right to vote. All of the lives that have been given in too many wars make it your duty to vote; to tell them that you appreciate the lives they gave.
If you didn't vote early, please vote on Tuesday.
You will notice that I haven't offered any political preference. That's not what Cat's Country Place is about. The only preference that I offer is that I love my country, these United States of America.
Betsy Ross is a favorite heroine of mine; she is credited with having crafted the first flag, Old Glory, the Red, White and Blue. I think we could have been friends.
God bless you and God Bless America.
