I live in a country that allows me to travel anywhere I choose and visit most anything I care to. Our Founding Fathers fought to give us this freedom, and we continue to this day to fight on many fronts to ensure this freedom remains intact.
So many take our freedoms for granted, and I thank God and our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guard for all they do to allow my family and me the opportunity to remember this day. Not just by cooking out, or watching fireworks, but by remembering that we are living a dream that many people in many nations do not enjoy and cannot imagine.
God bless America!
