It’s July 4th, Independence Day, but do we realize what it took to get us to this point:
- The men who risked their lives on the high seas in search of a new world.
- The men and women who suffered the hardships while establishing and building this new country.
- The Founding Fathers who bravely penned the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
- The men and women who have fought and died to preserve our freedoms for almost two and a half centuries.
This is a greatly abbreviated list but the point is this country’s birth was filled with risks, dangers and the blood of countless patriots, and the blood still flows even today.
We must never forget the sacrifices made, and while this country is 235 years old and is still growing, still maturing, in recent years we have taken some steps backwards that have hurt our country immensely. We elected an albatross that has been hung around our necks courtesy of an ignorant electorate.
But with the resilience of this great country we have corrected mistakes in the past and we will again and next year we will elect a TRUE LEADER!
