Honor the 4th

I hope everyone remembers this day is not about fireworks and hot dogs (but if you don't watch Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest I don't think you can consider yourself a real American.....SPOILER ALERT!  Men and women's contestants were upset this year).

But today is to remember that 239 years ago the United States of America became what it is today......or at least what we hope it can be.  A world leader.  What hard work and dedication and commitment can evolve into.

Hats off to those who have worked hard and dedicated their lives and their families lives to making all of our lives better.  Shame to those who settle for the "entitlement" that our current government (and commander-in-chief who never served a day in the armed forces) hands out.  

My heart goes out not to just the "Greatest Generation," (bless them), but to all of our dedicated soldiers, citizens, and others who have made this country great.

In this awful age of global terrorism, everyday I am grateful for those protecting us, from soldiers to law enforcement officers.  Be safe.  And thank you.
