    Remembering the True Meaning of the 4th of July


    One of the things that I appreciate and love about my home town of Providence, Rhode Island is not only it's beauty but it's history. In Providence rests one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. His accomplishments for the state of Rhode Island and our country are many

    Thank you Stephen Hopkins for participating in the signing of the Declaration of Independence many, many years ago.

    May we as Americans honor this day that you have given us, to have the priviledge to live in the land of the FREE.


    “Here lies the man in fateful hour,
    Who boldly stemm’d tyrannic pow’r,
    And held his hand in the decree,
    which bade America BE FREE!
