Happy Independence Day!
First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to say Happy Independence Day to each of you!Â Despite our state and national challenges we are so blessed to live in a country where we can exercise our freedoms to practice our faith and worship as we see fit, to participate in the political process, to pursue our dreams and ambitions, and to build a future for our children and grandchildren free from oppression and fear.Â Â May we each take a moment to thank God for this great blessing of being citizens of the greatest country on earth!Â May we also remember the many men and women who gave their lives that we might have this freedom.Â Let us also each be diligent and willing to do what is necessary to protect Â those freedoms against those who would take them from us both within and without our borders.
