Thank you to all the men & women and their families past & present who have sacrificed so much for this country and everyone in it.
Today and every day my freedoms run deep.
- I can openly pray to the God of my understanding.
- I can say what I want.
- I can eat, live, and sleep where I choose to.
- I can openly share my thoughts on what I wish to.
- I can take my family down the rivers or up the mountains and only be afraid of Mother Nature herself.
Today is a day where I am reminded to be thankful for my predecessors, who have fought so diligently to give me all I have and to protect all that as well.
I might not always be proud or happy with the “little things” but when I look at the big picture I am reminded of the challenges we have faced and the progress we have all made as a whole.
Although we will always have our trials and tribulations our country’s pride and heritage run deep and I am so proud to call myself an American.
So on this celebration of Independence Day I ask while you are enjoying your family, food, fireworks, and the great outdoors to please take a moment to reflect and give thanks to all those that have lost their lives and for the families who’s members they’ve lost protecting us folks and the country we choose to call home.
So here’s to the red, white, and blue and God Bless the good ole U.S. of A!!!
