Happy Fourth of July!

I want to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July!  I hope everyone takes the time today to reflect on what today means and give thanks to all those who sacrificed in the fight for the Independence of this Great Country. Remember what Nathan Hale said “I regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.” By the way, he was hanged by the British as a spy.  All of the founding fathers suffered great hardships during the Revolutionary War.  Read Rush Limbaugh’s The Americans who Risked Everything, (click on the link below to read it.)

That letter will give you an idea of what it meant to the signers of the Declaration of Independence for us to become free of British rule.

That spirit has carried on since that day and we have had men and women make the ultimate sacrifice to keep our Country free and we still have our brave men and women fighting to keep us safe and free at this very moment.  Make sure that you honor our military heroes past and present.  If you see one of our service men or women over this holiday weekend make sure that you thank them for everything they do.  Without our militaries sacrifices over the years we would not enjoy all that we have in our lives.

I would like to end me post today with a prayer for Independence Day from the book “Prayers for our Country”

“Today is the birthday of my country, God.  I give thanks and praise for its noble beginnings, its unwavering founders, and the bravery of all who have fought to sustain it.  May the red, white, and blue banner of the free continue to wave high above our land.  I ask you, Lord, to keep it free from hatred and protect it from harm.  Amen.”
