The her­itage we have

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Happy Fourth of July to all Arkansans. Cel­e­brate with a prayer for this free land. Have a pic­nic with all the sum­mer veg­gies and fruits. Add a hot dog or ham­burger on the grill. Pro­pose a toast with ice-cold tea, lemon­ade or a beer. All goes down easy. Ice cream is a must in a cone, and ber­ries to fill a bowl.

What a her­itage we have—all of us here from other places and blend­ing well. Wher­ever we go we see smil­ing faces and happy chil­dren. Hug one an­other while you can. Fly high or sail smoothly and drive care­fully when va­ca­tion be­gins. Half the fun of the jour­ney is the an­tic­i­pa­tion.

Lucky us—we have such a wide range to choose—take joy and pack love and give it all away.
