The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Holiday should be celebrated

 


To The Eagle:

Happy Independence Day! On July 4th, 331 million of us will have occasion to celebrate the birth of our nation, and the dearly bought freedoms and liberties that are the foundation of our lives as its citizens.

It is for us to continue to strive to make this nation a more perfect union. Let us do so by applying ourselves to:

The Golden Mean: That virtue lies between the extremes. If we can travel the middle path of moderation and temperance, goodness and beauty will accompany us.

The Golden Rule: That everyone on our national journey treat each other in the fashion they would want to be treated.

The Golden Ideal: That we treat our freedoms as more than just the liberty to do as we please, but also an obligation and opportunity, to do what is right.
