Happy Independence Day!
July 04, 2016
Happy 4th of July, and Happy Birthday America! There's no better day to CELEBRATE the freedom that we're so privileged to enjoy here in America. We're getting all dressed up in red, white, and blue, unplugging from technology, and enjoying precious time with the people who matter most to us.
With so much going on in the world around us, we're often so quick to forget how privileged we are to live in this great country. Take a few moments to be grateful today. Slow down long enough to savor the moments that usually go unnoticed. Remember all of those who have gone before us to fight for our unrivaled freedom. And let's not forget Erma Bombeck's quote, "You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism." Let's show our patriotism today, friends!
