Happy Fourth!

Fourth of July, Independence Day, MDSHappy July 4th!  I saw a cartoon with this image last year, and decided to create a card with My Digital Studio.  (For you non-geeky musicians, the C-F interval is a perfect fourth.)

Hope you have a wonderful day – and most of all, thank you to all the brave men and women who serve in our military and make it possible to celebrate this holiday!

For some reason, I can’t find the “reblog” button from Mike’s blog, but his post today was so sweet.  It made me cry.  So here’s the “cut and paste” version.

On July 4, 1917, General John J. Pershing marched American dough-boys into Paris in the first public display of American troops as the United States officially entered WWI.  The American troops continued their march through Paris until they reached the tomb of Marquise de Lafayette.

As the Parisians looked on, Colonel Charles Stanton stopped at Lafayette’s tomb and declared, “Lafayette, we are here.”  General Pershing announced that the Americans were there to return the favor.  The independence of America has aided many in their own independence.  God bless this great country, and happy Independence Day!

Hope you have a “perfect fourth,” and thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.

General Pershing also brought a layer of American soil which he placed on Lafayette’s grave.  At the completion, he said, “Now Lafayette is buried under American soil.”
