Let not it be said I'm not feeling patriotic today.
Enjoy the holiday, but take a moment to reflect on what it means to be free - how fragile that freedom has become and our personal responsibility in maintaining the freedom we take for granted.
We're free to be the best person we can be.
We're free to pursue what makes us happy.
We're free and able to live life without fear of oppression.
We're free to make mistakes and grow from them.
We're free to vote away our freedoms with a touch to a computer screen.
Let us all prayerfully and mindfully protect our precious freedoms.
