Happy Birthday America!

Hi everyone,

As we head into the long 4th of July weekend, together with thoughts of parades and fireworks, my mind is turning to patriotism and national pride.  July 4th is a great time to get together with family & friends, wear our red, white & blue and display our flags, but please remember to take a few moments to think about what it is we celebrate.

I want to thank our Armed Forces for stepping into danger for the sake of others every day of the year.  God bless our troops!

So whatever you have planned this 4th of July whether it be a barbecue, listening to brass bands playing marches and toe-tapping tunes enjoy yourself and think about your freedom.

Happy Birthday America!
