I know, I know, I know.  I’m a little late to the party.  Happy Birthday, America – the greatest country on God’s Green Earth!

We hope you all enjoyed the 4th of July, despite the oppressive heat and humidity.  Sweeney’s sponsored a local Girl Scout Troop in Bensenville’s parade.  The girls did a great job decorating the truck.

“Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

– Benjamin Franklin

“Every good citizen makes his country’s honor his own, and cherishes it not only as precious but as sacred.  He is willing to risk his life in its defence and is conscious that he gains protection while he gives it.”

 – Andrew Jackson

“The real democratic idea is, not that every man shall be on a level with every other, but that every one shall have liberty, without hindrance, to be what God made him.”

– Henry Ward Beecher

“We will always remember.  We will always be proud.  We will always be prepared, so we will always be free.”

 – Ronald Reagan

“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.”

Best wishes & stay cool,
