Happy Independence Day! Today we celebrate the independence of the United States. It is one of my favorite holidays. It’s a time when families gather, you see a sparkle in the children’s eyes with the excitement of the holiday and the fireworks they know are about to happen. It’s just a fun day to spend with family and friends.
It’s so much more than that, though. It’s about our freedom. It’s a celebration that we live in a country that is free, thanks to those who have chosen to fight for that. I never want to forget that it is our military that’s done what’s necessary to give us the freedom we have. Their sacrifice makes all of this possible.
And so, today, in the midst of your family celebrations and fireworks, I ask you to stop and say thank you to our military folks and their families. Don’t forget the spouses and families, for I believe they are the unsung heroes in our military. Thank them, for their service, their dedication, and in some cases, the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live in a free country. My hat’s are off to each of you.
Enjoy your Fourth!
