I just wanted to wish everyone who is reading this a happy Independence Day. Today is a day that we get to celebrate our freedom and liberty afforded to us by men and women brave enough and with enough conviction to turn a little band of colonies into the most admired, powerful and envied nation in the world today. People are still fleeing their contries for a chance at a better life in the USA. Hopefully those folks won’t forget what allows them to do that.
War is not nice but it is necessary
As our country is at war, even at this very hour, it seems that various media outlets are painting a rather nasty impression of our president, our armed forces, our troops and our patriots. It is not my intent to get into an opinionated sermon on the goods of being at war. However, I must say that had it not been for countless men and women giving their lives up for this great country we might not have the very rights that allow us to bash what is happening in the world today. Good or bad, had our forefathers and fellow contrymen not gone to war we might still be an oppressed nation today.
Praise God for our troops
Again, I am not trying to be a political powder keg, but I feel it deserves mention. Our troops, and the troops of those forces fighting along side of us right now, are a Godsend. It takes a special kind of person to be able to offer themselves up day after day for the potential improvement of a people that might not even want the improvement. There were some colonists a few hundred years ago that decided to do the same thing and praise the Lord, we are a free nation today. To all you soldiers out there, past and present, I thank God for you.
I suppose there is a lot more that I could say here. But this is neither the time nor the place to get into all that. Have a safe Independence Day holiday. May God bless you and your family.
