Liberty & Freedom!

It’s Independence Day Weekend. As I consider the benefits of living in the United States, the two words “liberty” and “freedom” come to mind. Both, like oxygen, are taken for granted until they’re gone. Recently, my family traveled to New York City and visited the Statue of Liberty. The tour guide explained the statue was created with one heal slightly lifted to symbolize the work of liberty moving forward. At that moment, I was grateful for the role the United States has played in history.

A snapshot from our recent trip.

Our beautiful country, despite her flaws, is a great place to live and raise a family. As we head to backyard barbeques, beaches, and firework shows, let us not forget our forefathers who risked their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to secure liberty and freedom for us. Take time this weekend and be grateful. Happy Fourth of July!
