As we celebrate Independence Day in the United States, I have many things on my mind.
I am thankful that I can spend the day with my family, several generations actually, eating good food, drinking a few, and playing in the pool. I can do this knowing no one will try to invade the party or bomb us.
I am grateful that I live in a country where, though I do not agree with many things like the recent Hobby Lobby birth control issue, we can discuss it openly – even if I don’t agree, and no one is going to come and arrest me because I do not agree and I voice it publicly.
I respect those who sacrifice and are brave enough to put their lives on the line so I can do these things. My sincerest gratitude!
I value the freedom of expression we all have.
Just something I was thinking about . . .
