Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day

The  4th of July is a wonderful reminder of what freedom truly meant to the founding fathers of this country. They fought and sacrificed greatly for these freedoms that we sometimes take for granted. I for one am thankful to them, as well as to all of those who have served in any way to help keep those freedoms alive and well in this country.

The Constitution well defined their intentions. 

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.

Fireworks are used for a reason to celebrate this day. Let us remember all those who came before to gain these freedoms, and all those who still serve to retain them for us.

...and the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh say, does that star spangled banner yet wave o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

God bless America!
