Happy Independence Day to you!
Today is a day for gratitude—a day to reflect on all the freedoms and blessings we have in this country.
Can we find flaws in our country and our system of government? Of course. Perhaps especially during this highly charged political season, we see many flaws. However, we have only to look at places such as Syria, Afghanistan or the Mideast; and we can see what our freedoms mean.
So today, give thanks for what we do have in this country—and make a commitment to do your part to make it even better. We should never think that our actions and behavior make no difference. They do.
