Happy 4th of July!!!
Thank you to the generation of veterans who are almost gone. Like Great-great Uncle Woodrow, who lost his leg and eye when he stormed the beach at Normandy.
Thank you, Uncle Bud. You and your comrades served multiple tours in Vietnam, and many came home to face much disrespect for your sacrifice and effort.
Thank you to the boys I went to school with, who got angry on September 11th and went and enlisted, who served and are still serving.
We so often forget that freedom isn't free.
It's easy to forget all the blood and tears that have been shed.
It's easy to forget the pain and the toil.
That so many have served so that we can choose our leaders instead of being ruled by tyrant kings.
That we can speak freely without fear of persecution.
That we can worship freely without fear of punishment or even death.
God bless America!
