Happy Independence Day!
Watch this excellent documentary from the History Channel to appreciate the courage and determination of the ragtag army that defeated the greatest military force in the world at the time. I am forever grateful and proud to be an American, where we still have the right to dream, work, and create the life of our choosing. It’s the reason why Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays.
The American Revolution is the ultimate example of what men and women can accomplish with belief, faith, desire, bravery, persistence and the knowledge that “all men are created equal, endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights, chief among these life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
“Your rights come, not from the King, not from the government, but from God.”
Our Founders and those who fought to gain our independence, along with everyone who has served in uniform since, are an inspiration and a reason to give thanks every day. God bless America.
