Something to remember on the 4th…

flag - windowsThere’s a reason why we stand and put our hands over our hearts when the veterans carry Old Glory down the street during the 4th of July parade.

We live in, and reap the benefits of, the free market because our men and women in the armed forces, throughout the history of this great nation, took an oath to defend that freedom with their own lives if necessary.

I know several of you who are readers here have military service to your credit and I am embarrassed to say that I am often so selfishly enjoying the freedom you helped provide, I don’t take time to appreciate it.

No freedom, no free market. Lest we forget.

If you’re a veteran, THANK YOU for making Independence Day something we get to celebrate again this year!

Happy 4th of July!
