#618 The Fourth of July

The day has arrived again as it does every year. For many it is a day to celebrate this country's independence from an oppressive government. Many will celebrate with parties, food, drink, fireworks, friendship and frivolity.

Some will be unable to do so because they are serving their country and are in harm's way as the do it. Other will be unable to do so for many reasons.

As you celebrate the day, give pause to consider the ideals in the Declaration of Independence and those that the framers of the Constitution set forth in that magnificent document. Take time to read it and reflect upon it. What are you doing to live by its guidance?

If you have served our country in any way, Thank you.
If you are serving our country now, Thank you.
If you plan to serve our country, do so, and Thank you.

Please remember to...

Serve with integrity, Care about those you serve, and Share the love in your heart/soul.

I like that you've said thank you, Jack. But I imagine you would be in those to be thanked, too.
