Welcome to the 4th of July 2012!!!!! As we sit around and enjoy family, take a moment to think about how blessed we are as people. Our independence as a people and as a nation, have been carried on the backs of others. Our country has seen many things, been through many things, and accomplished many things, but we still have a long way to go. As a veteran of the Army, I have been many places, and seen many things. These things have propelled a sense of responsibility and thankfulness in my heart. We are truly the best country in the world. We do take many things for granted, and we as a people must never take for granted our freedoms. I share this with you as a proud citizen of this country and as a retired Army Soldier. I have been truly blessed with a wonderful military career and the freedom to become who I am as a woman.
So today, take a moment and think how blessed we are as a nation and as a people. Today we celebrate our independence. Today we celebrate what makes us the best country in the world. Today, we celebrate “Us”. May you have a safe and Happy 4th of July.
