Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July, y’all!

I’m proud to be an American and celebrate this country I live in! There are many, many things that we’re still working through in this country and will continue to work through for some time. However, I feel very lucky to live in a place where I am free and when I think of all those freedoms, gifts that were given to me by men and women who sacrificed so much, I feel all the the more thankful. That’s what today means to me; Celebrating what freedoms we have, remembering those who fought to bring those to us, the future generations, and the thinking of those who will come after us and inherit this land.

As you cruise around the lake, grill up the burgers and watch the fireworks bursting in air, remember that these freedoms were not free and raise a toast of thanks for all we have! We have work to do but today we celebrate!

“We’re blessed with the opportunity to stand for something - for liberty and freedom and fairness. And these are things worth fighting for, worth devoting our lives to."

(Ronald Reagan)

I believe in America because we have great dreams, and because we have the opportunity to make those dreams come true.”

(Wendell Willkie)
