"The Declaration of Independence of the Thirteen Colonies In CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness."

Letters: Impressions of Korean War: By Lois A. Kaplan. From Greg Flotard to Jerry Merna (Photo of My Dad No9 on Football Team).
WebLinks: July 28, 2003 National Remembrance Korean War From Jerry Merna: Although this occurred two years ago, just came across the link while researching the Korean War. My brother Jim and I attended this ceremony. Note also the photographer is my namesake son. If you click on each of the three pictures they will enlarge. For you Korean War Vets, (and others who may want it) this is a good chance to "save" a picture of the stamp; after you enlarge it, click "Save As" and its done.

'Home Kids' By Nancy Canfield: The story of St. Agatha Home for Children:
"We're going to take you kids,"
he pointed to each of us sitting on the couch and said our names in a sing-song voice "Jackie... Tommy... Hellen... David and Nancy," pausing between each name as if to prove he knew them, "to see a school tomorrow, a boarding school, see how you like it." He said this in a voice that implied it was temporary, like we'd have a choice about attending. With those words the Canfield siblings began a journey that profoundly shaped their formative years. Home Kids is Nancy Canfield's courageous retelling of her family's dramatic story and the inspirational story of St. Agatha Home for Children.  (More....)
