Happy Independence Day!

Happy Fourth!! 


I doubt anyone is reading this - we're all too busy having our barbecues, boating, watching (& setting off) fireworks, and spending time with family. For anyone who is reading this, though, I'd like to share the second and fourth verses of our National Anthem with you all.

original image source (flag&veterans)//edited by me
I hope that, through all of the fun and games today, we each take a second to remember how blessed we are to live in such a wonderful country. Remember those who have given their lives to preserve and protect the very freedoms, rights, and privileges that are slowly, one by one, day by day, being revoked. Remember that we truly are in the land of the free and the home of the brave. If you see a service man or woman, thank them for all that they have done for our great country.

This makes me so happy as someone very close to me serves. It always touches him (and me) when people remember what these holidays are TRULY about. Thanks Alyx and Happy 4th! :)

Thanks for the reminder that today isn't just about burning down neighbors yards and grilling up suspect meats.
I truly think the US has the most beautiful national anthem in the world.
