The Fourth of July has special meaning in the Shepherd House.

We shared, with the rest, a national celebration. 

It’s our birthday!  On this day, We-the-People declared ourselves to the world a new nation under God, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.  We share an inalienable endowment — and a promise — with a new order of the ages.

We share a promise with a new order of the ages.

But something else.  The Shepherd family also declared itself on this day: Frank and Maureen, Guy’s father and mother, became husband and wife, until death would part them.

My dad had a way with words.

“Son, I was married at the age of 33 and on the Fourth of July.

At the age of 33, our Lord and Savior ended His pilgrimage. I gave up mine as well.  On this day our country declared independence. I gave up mine.

Frank Shepherd loved his wife and country, until death parted him from both.

Frank Shepherd was a Planned Man Poet Laureate.  Happy Anniversary, Mom, and happy birthday, America.
