Happy 4th to all my fellow FReepers!

(Deut 30, Psalm 111...the Torah and the Law, is attainable past, present and forever.)
One can imagine such events happening. Under HIS almighty hand. A nation was created, for a given purpose, that within it's reality, brought forth all the goodness of HIS intentions for mankind.
