Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

On the Road to Independence

Step back in time to 1775. . .




Remember:
America's fight for freedom!
It did not JUST HAPPEN overnight!

Click the picture to get the story how a fledgling, largely disconnected
nation won its freedom from the greatest military force of its time.

On the Road to Independence. . .

They saw the need
For liberation
A need that led
To a united nation

Thirteen colonies
Desiring to be free
Joined together
To fight for liberty

Taxes, taxes, taxes
Duties on this and that
Tempers roaring, soaring
Resulted in combat

Without this fight
A nation would not be
Remembering those
Who fought for liberty

Were it not for them
Who lived and died
 A nation would not be
Joyful with pride

Destined a nation
Not to be destitute
A stalwart nation
Arose firm and resolute
