Though we all may have one area or more where we may feel that our freedom has been taken from us, we need to stop a moment and thank God for our freedom here in the USA. There are so many countries around the globe that have so many restrictions and limitations placed on them that they are not able to rightfully say , “I am free!!!” This July 4th holiday, reach out to embrace the freedom given to us here and be thankful for all those in our heritage and even our current troops who courageously gave their hard sacrifices for this nation’s freedom. I fully respect the rights that our forefathers established in the constitution and do have a problem when I see people defile what our forefathers had fought to uphold. While we celebrate July 4-please pray for those who have not yet returned home from Afghanistan, Iraq and Korea.
