Happy 4th of July!

I hope everyone is having a happy and safe 4th today.

I want to remind people to remember what today is about.

Today is the 235th Anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Many men fought and died to help our country become the land of the free. Many men and women to this day continue to fight for our country and the people in it safe and free.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,[70] that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." - Declaration of Independence

So while everyone is grilling, swimming, drinking a beer and popping fireworks remember what today is about. Also keep those in your prayers who right now are over seas away from their family and friends. Eat a burger for them, drink a beer in their honor and remember what they do each day for you while you watch the pretty colors scatter through the sky.

Celebrate smart and enjoy!

Happy Independence Day!
