Happy 4th of July ~ Let FREEDOM Ring!

Please join us in celebrating the precious freedom we, as a country, enjoy and hold dear. Freedom that our young men and women are fighting for overseas in so many countries - in too many countries. Freedom that the young people of Iran, wearing their green ribbons in recognition of their fight for freedom, marched for and died for after a sham presidential election - their blood falling onto the hard, cold pavement. Freedom that we were born with - the same freedom that others throughout our world fight for and pray for and die for each and every day, quietly and without notice.
Today as we celebrate our remarkable freedom with picnics and family and friends and fireworks and sparklers, please stop for a moment to remember all those that came before us who died for this day and all those who are not home with their loved ones because they are deployed in Iraq or Afghanistan fighting to preserve this day.

Happy 4th of July ~ Let Freedom Ring ~ God Bless America

Thank you for reminding us what it is all about. My Auntie, Uncle, and Cousin are all in the service and I think about them a lot (well, actually, auntie and uncle are retired because they are totally 250 years old).
