Independence Day…..No….Not the movie (Although that was a good one huh?) No I’m talking about America’s Independence.  Today we celebrate all that is American….by eating BBQ and Burgers while blowing stuff up.  Now THAT’S American!

In our pursuit of happiness and our day to day struggle to survive we as a country need to take a step back and really remember what was sacrificed to build America.  We sometimes seem to take for granted the way of life we have become accustomed to.  Things weren’t always the way we know it.  Through the years, many men and women sacrificed  their homes, their families, their lives to make this country strong, independent & free.  When we fail to recognize and acknowledge their sacrifices we are in danger of letting down our guard and becoming complacent.  When that happens we begin to let people walk over us, control us, take away our freedoms that generations before us fought and died for.  To do that would be to disrespect their legacy.  If we forget what was lost in order to live freely then we are doomed to be shackled and controlled……Not free.

Go ahead and get to the festivities…..and today…..when you’re grillling up those burgers……..lighting those fireworks……raising that flag…….swelling with pride over being an American……remember that we didn’t get here overnight.  It was a long hard battle for freedom.  If we’re not careful…..it could be gone in an instant.  The battle for true freedom never ends…..it’s an ongoing battle.  There is always someone right around the corner that wants to take it away from you.  Always be prepared to fight for your freedom.  Keep America strong.  Keep America Great.  Keep America FREE!

 Enjoy your time with family today.  Happy 4th of July………and let the bells of freedom ring (or at least the fireworks of freedom explode).

Happy 4th of July
