“People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.” —Paulo Coelho
With the annual 4th of July parade behind us and 4th of July barbecues and get together’s in front of us, I take this brief moment to wish you and your’s a Happy, Safe, and Memorable 4th of July.
Independence was declared 237 years ago, something brave and new to the time as kings, princes, and emperors ruled and the revolutionaries were certain this was not the way to live. From that point forward, the United States of America has grown as a leader in the world as peace bringers, supporters of the democratic way of life, and example of standing strong in times of strife.
Please take a moment to remember all those who have given the greatest gift of all, their lives, in defending and protecting this great country of ours and all that the United States Flag stands for. While we may not agree with all of the policies and ideas, wars and struggles that we, as a country are in involved in at this point in history, it is important to remember the ideas that formed this country not so long ago.
To my Dad Paul and my Grandpa Ralph and Frank, for my wife’s Grandpa Ray and her Uncle Larry. For all the strong men and women who have stepped up and given of themselves. Thank you.
Happy 4th of July America. To all the rest of the world searching and seeking the same rights and privileges we sometimes take for granted, keep persevering, searching, and fighting for that right of freedom that being human should allow.
