I hope everyone is having a safe and happy 4th of July. Independence Day is a big deal to those of us who live in the United States. Except for the Native Americans who were here first, our ancestors came from every where to live together in this country for the sake of freedom and the pursuit of happiness. Today we celebrate and honor the cornerstone of our country's heritage given to us by our forefathers and maintained by the men and woman who serve their country all over the world. I hope some day they can all come home and rejoin their loved ones, safe and sound.
While we celebrate this historic day, I also want to mention those who volunteer to serve in the Gulf to protect and restore our coast and our wildlife and a debt of thanks to the American Red Cross and their dedication to helping victims of disaster all over the world.
Have a wonderful holiday, everyone, keep safe and have a great day celebrating being American.
