However it may be that you celebrate our nation’s day of independence, do so with a sense of gratitude to those who have gone before for making this nation what it is.  It isn’t a nation without its problems and dark moments in history, but it has long been the nation others have looked upon for inspiration, opportunity and help in times of need.

The freedoms we enjoy were gained on the backs of those who built this country and the lives of those who gave their all in her defense.  Also remember that at some July 4th in the distant future, you will be remembered as being among those who built this country, so give it your best and leave a legacy of which you can be proud.  So as you celebrate, enjoy the festivities and time with friends, but remember just how blessed we are to live in the United States of America.  May God bless us all!
