4th of July

The fourth of July, a time to celebrate our country and a time to relax with family and friends. Isn’t it more than that though? What’s the history and real reason behind the 4th of July? How many times have we said our nation’s pledge, and not thought about what it was really saying?

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the Unites States of America and to the Republic, for which it stands. One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

This fourth of July, don’t forget how we gained our freedom and our reason for celebration. Our forefathers took a huge risk when they stepped out to stand up for our country’s independence. Soldiers have fought for you and I and their families and friends have sacrificed so that we could have liberty and justice. This year, don’t let the reality of that slip past you. We are so blessed to live in this country where we can have the job we want, live where we want, and do whatever we want with our lives. Not many other people can say they have those freedoms. Though our country is not perfect, she is still beautiful, and that is because she was founded on God. This Saturday when you are relaxing and enjoying a barbecue, remember the sacrifice that was made so you could have freedom and remember how wonderful our country is.

God Bless the USA!
