I just want everyone to take the time tomorrow to reflect the true reason for our celebration. We are a free nation because of the men and women who fight for what they beleive in everyday. I know that we all have our own ideas when it comes to this war and politics in general. But for just for this day put this aside and remember the reason we have the ability to speak freely on what we believe is because of these people. Granted I don't agree with alot of the ways we do things in this country either. But I hold close in my heart the people who fight for us everyday. My husband is in the Air Force so this hits close to home for me. Tomorrow during your cook outs and as you watch the fireworks, remember those who aren't with their families, may it be we lost them to death or they are off serving our country in a foreign land. They are someone's sister, brother, father, mother, spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend, grandchild, niece, nephew, cousin and friend. They are sacrificing their lives because they believe that we all should be FREE!!!! Take the time to invite maybe some who wouldn't to your BBQ tomorrow or to share the fireworks with you. Say a prayer for those who are not here to celebrate with you. We have a chance to celebrate together our amazing history please don't miss yours.
