In my BackUP file … USA

“In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

This wasn’t supposed to be my post for today’s SquareUp Challenge…but then I was moved by a fellow blogger’s view of anger, of doubt, of sadness and then with the Inauguration … finally being able to breathe a sigh of relief, of optimism and of hope for the American people. Thanks Paulie and wishing you all the best!

And because I haven’t been to the USA since 2005 when smart phones weren’t so much a thing yet, I looked at my backUP files and saw photos from my daughter’s business trip to America in 2019. She usually sends me photos to let me know she’s okay and to share her photos of doors, iconic places and streetarts (because she knows very well that those are my obsession). What a lovely daughter she is…. thanks Pat ❤️

  1. Gifted doors are always nice, and given that Bruce Springsteen performed at the inauguration party, Jersey Doors are totally appropriate.

    Let’s hope we’ve opened a door to a new era here in the States.

    Take care Teresa.

  2. Teresa, I knew the world was looking at the the USA yesterday, but for me it was a sad day that someone who had stolen the votes of the people for his benefit., was inaugurated. I have faith that this is not yet the end.
    Did not know you also had been to the USA:) It made me smile you have a daughter who also likes to travel. I have a son like that.
