4th Of July Blessing

The 4th of July represents the greatest achievement for individual freedom the world has ever known, especially for the common person. Before America became a country... kings, tyrants, royalty and the elite ruled with little regard for the rights of the masses. Now, we the people of America, tell the lawmakers what we want and not the other way around. The ultimate power lies within each person through their vote and their Representatives.

Today, we are reminded of the blessings we enjoy as Americans and how unique our country continues to be. When I look at the fireworks displays this year, I'm going to think about the sacrifices that were made for me, by brave men and women of our Armed Forces and the courage of our forefathers, whose vision and dream molded the foundation of this nation.

But most of all, I'm going to give thanks to God for His Divine Blessing, not only for us alone, but for the entire world. Without the influence of America and the vision of freedom for all mankind, there would be little hope for any of us.
