Happy 4th of July

I reflect a lot on how lucky I am to live in the United States. I'm able to walk, drive, and ride freely through the country. I'm able to vote without worrying about being tortured or killed. I'm able to write whatever I feel like on this blog without worrying that I'll be arrested. I know right now our country is going through some tough times but we are Americans and we always persevere. I really think right now is a time to reflect about what is really important in our lives. It's our families and friends. It's the more simple things in life like a nice long walk or a cup of coffee with a good friend.

I also reflect on the true heroes of our country. What would our country be like without our military, police, firefighters, doctors, nurses, and teachers? I thank them from the bottom of my heart for what they do.

Please take some time to reflect on how lucky you are to live in this great land of ours. Always be proud of being an American! We are the greatest country in the world! Please also take a moment to say a prayer for our brave military. Without them sitting on their post and guarding us from terror, we would not be able to enjoy this celebration of our country in peace. God Bless America!
