"We hold these truths to be self-evident..."

Happy Birthday USA!

Taking a break from the IWSG Blog Hop. 
I'll participate again in August!

The Lenni-Lenape laws helped to influence the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Though Native American tribes rarely get credit for the positive rolls they played in shaping early American laws, it did happen. And the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia, which is on the land where my Lenni-Lenape people had lived for thousands of years. Fun facts! 😊

For the IWSG July prompt asking which book world I would live in, I narrowed it down to three choices.
One is a short-story I published. One is from a popular series. And one is better known from television, but there are books. It's all on my blog.
Today's Google Doodle This is a tribute to Charlie Hill of the Oneida Nation, the first Native American stand-up comedian to be on a nationally broadcast television show.
Over at Operation Awesome, our Pass or Pages query contest is open this week with July's family saga genre. Know any writers who might want to enter?

I missed posting in May and June and got cut from the list. I'm back this month. Enjoy your break. Sometimes, we need to skip a month, or two, because - life!

Have a good time! :D

Thanks for the reminder! I took a trip to Boston and was reminded of what a different world our founders lived in and the penalties they would have suffered if they'd failed.

J.Q. Rose said...

Thank you for sharing those fun facts about the Native American tribes.

J.Q. Rose said...

Thank you. I love learning about American history.

J.Q. Rose said...

Glad you're back. Yes, we do need some time away from the keyboard.

J.Q. Rose said...

Thank you. We had a wonderful holiday weekend with our family.

J.Q. Rose said...

It was a good time! Lots of food! LOL

J.Q. Rose said...

So true. I don't think people realize how much our founders gave up to make this nation independent. Thank you for your comment.

Enjoy your break. Happy Summer!
