The Fourth of July is a time for us to stop, slow down and reflect on the wondrous fortune we have to be citizens of America. We celebrate our nation's story as visions of muskets & redcoats dance in our head. While it has been over 200 years since our founders declared independence this weekend will be full of cookouts, trips to the lake and fireworks just the same.
As we head out to be with family and friends this holiday weekend, let your mind wander just a little. Think about the beauty that is America. Within her shores lies the dream and idea of freedom. The freedom to speak your mind and share your opinion, the freedom to create and strike out on your own, the freedom to impact others. We have so many freedoms and are blessed to call America home.
