Any finally, my favorite quote from First Lady and all-around badass, Eleanor Roosevelt:

“True patriotism springs from a belief in the dignity of the individual, freedom and equality not only for Americans but for all people on earth, universal brotherhood and good will, and a constant and earnest striving toward the principles and ideals on which this country was founded.”
~Eleanor Roosevelt


Stay safe, have fun, and be thankful for our freedom!

xx, Your Team {LL805}
