Independence Day is important to me, because it reminds me to step back each year and take account of the freedoms I enjoy – and to remember how important they are. We all seem to take our freedoms for grated from time to time, myself included. But as I look at the headlines from around the world, I’m reminded just how amazing our independence is.
Adlai Stevenson described it beautifully …
“America is much more than a geographical fact.
It is a political and moral fact – the first community
in which men set out in principle to institutionalize
freedom, responsible government, and human equality.”
As we remember the importance of our freedom and celebrate our independence, I hope you and yours enjoy a very happy and safe fourth of July! God Bless you and God Bless the USA.
My best to you,
