Independence Day, July 4 

Today, many people will attend parades others will spend the day with family and friends. However you choose to spend today, please remember that we are the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Because of the ideals and beliefs of the Founders, America became and still is a beacon to the world for freedom loving people everywhere. We need to remember that what we have is still unique - the opportunity to succeed is there for those who work at it. As stated in other posts, we have our warts but we examine our warts and make changes over time. In too many places on the planet, religion, tribe, language, etc. prohibit people from achieving their dreams, change is very difficult, if not impossible.

In the USA, individuals can have dreams and with effort achieve most of them. Today is our Independence Day, the commemoration of our Founders deciding that people could rule themselves. Let's keep it going.
