The 4th of July means freedom, family, and sacrifice to me.
We have the freedom to live and grow as individuals. We have the freedom to become anything we set our sights on. We have these freedoms because of the sacrifices so many men and women have made for us for hundreds of years.
Family – a strong unit that ties not only by blood, but by love and trust. The 4th of July is a time when you can spend time with family and forget the everyday hustle and bustle of life. It’s a time to enjoy a good cookout and catch up.
Sacrifice – a very strong word that not many people can truly understand. July 4th is a time when you can show your appreciation for the true sacrifices so many men and women have made for us to be able to have our freedom and have the ability to enjoy a day with our family without fear of any dangers around us. We live in a country where these men and women give so much for our peace of mind.
Take the time on this holiday to be thankful for not only our freedom, but for the men and women who over time have given so much for that freedom!
