4th of July - Independance Day

Today I celebrate the land of the free and home of the brave; my home and country of birth. 

I'm so grateful for our founding fathers and the foresight and vision they had for a country that was free from tyranny and oppression; a country where freedom of speech is celebrated and open debate allowed; and a country where we are free to worship as we choose.  I'm thankful for the faith in God these men possessed and their strength to seek guidance from a Higher Power.  As George Washington stated, "It is impossible to rightly govern a nation without God and the Bible.

As we go about our holiday festivities, let us not forget The God our country was founded upon and the men who made the ultimate sacrifice for the privileges we enjoy today.  God bless America today and always.  Amen.
