Tag Archives: 4th July


Yesterday, our Fourth of July,
We watched parades and cheered the sky.
Freedom given by our past,
We now take for granted, will it last?

Today, they remembered those before we came;
Honored their ancestors and descendents who remain.
Freedom returned, once stolen from their past,
They won’t take for granted, will it last?

Dedicated to the Mashpee Wampanoag & their 92nd Annual Powwow (July 5-7, 2013)
