happy Independence Day!

happy Independence Day!

Today is a day to celebrate our country, and everything it stands for.  All the freedoms, opportunities, and prosperity we have, which we tend to take for granted, are a gift to us from our forefathers (and foremothers.)

I'm going to spend a few minutes today thinking about the big picture - political party, age or income bracket, and personal wants and needs be damned. If we can be willing to put our country first, like our grandfathers and their grandfathers before them, we can rest in peace knowing our grandchildren and their grandchildren will have the same freedoms, opportunities, and prosperity that we've enjoyed.

I hope you'll do the same..

Happy 4th of July,
