Celebrate the 4th!

If you will remember when our forefathers claimed their independance it was just the beginning of the fight for our freedom.  We eventually won our freedom but it came a significant cost.  It took time.

Since the day that we truly became a free nation our freedom has continually been challenged.  American's have rallied time and time again and answered the call to fight for our freedom.  There have been many wars, and millions have shed their blood to protect what we have.  We should honor our hero's this weekend.  The hero's are the forefathers that had the guts to stand up and say "enough is enough".  "We want our freedom."  Then they wrote the Declaration of Independence which became the lighting rod that rallied the rank and file to stand up and fight for our freedom.  The hero's are all that have fought to protect our way of life.

To me honoring them by going to a parade, or having a cookout or watching fireworks is not enough anymore.  I think our freedom is being threatened on many fronts today and we need to stand up like our forefathers and be counted.  We need to stand strong for the principals upon which we were founded.

"We the people!"

This is our country, our constitution and if we are going to survive we are going to have to make sure it is honored and preserved.  If YOU are not going to do it WHO will?
