WELCOME TO DUANE'S DRAWINGS: TANGLE BLOG.......WHERE TANGLES LIVE and Play...
The Diva, before she signed off for the summer, said we should do a tile that commemorates our homes. To me there is no greater honor than to recognize my country as my home. The United States of America has been my home since birth. I made the decision early in life that I wanted to serve her in anyway I could, so I joined the Navy at 18 years of age and stayed for a career of 30 years. The United States is a world power now that not that long ago was subservient to the monarchy of England. 241 years ago this land revolted from that monarchy and form of government and declared independence. It is recognized that was July 4, 1776 that a lot of brave men put their names to the document of the Declaration of Independence and sent it across the Atlantic Ocean to the King of England. If the revolution had failed, the people whose names are on that document would have been put to death as traitors to the Crown. That is why I revere those men so much; they took that responsibility on themselves for that action.
My tile for this week commemorates for me this sentiment:
