As July 4th approaches, America starts to prepare for her 242nd birthday party. We want to especially remember that this birthday party was bought and paid for by brave men and women who served, fought and died for an ideal. That we can live in freedom. Is it perfect? No, but it is still here and still a shining beacon on a hill. We have Memorial Day to remember those who died to provide this freedom, Veterans Day to honor all who serve. Independence Day is and should be a day of celebration. Happy Birthday, America!
