It’s called independence day for a reason. We’re a free people because men and women in uniform upheld the oaths taken that said they’d lay down their lives for the sake of that cause. You’re probably not guilty of this, but I’m sure prone to take that for granted.
Our family wishes you and yours a happy 4th of July. Freedom is certainly worth celebrating, and those who continue to pay the price for that freedom deserve remembering, too.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” – Ronald Reagan
