I just wanted to take a moment to share the over powering love I feel tonight for this great land. I know we have our faults, some very alarming, but, there is no place like America! We are so free and blessed. I am so grateful that I am an American.
We have a rich heritage that we can not take for granted. Many have gone before us and fought and died for what we celebrate today. Our country is special and different and unique. We have been allowed to live in a time in history where we experience a freedom and prosperity unheard of in times past.
We can not allow our childrten to grow up and not understand this. They must know that freedom is something to hold on to, something to cherish and, yes, even to fight for, and if needs be, to die for.
There is an old Marine Corp saying... no one wants to fight, but someone better know how to!
Let freedom ring!!
