I know that every now and then I will get a reader from another country or a reader who differs in political opinion from me. However, today we can all agree on the principle behind American Independence Day. Freedom is preferred, freedom is a blessing many don’t have, and freedom always comes at a price.
As a Christian, I know the feeling of having deserved nothing but condemnation and been given freedom at the cost of Christ. As an American, I can appreciate that without the sacrifice of our Armed Forces men and women to give me the freedom I enjoy everyday.
Today, we celebrate the freedom that was fought and died for by our first soldiers and is continually upheld by them today. Today we celebrate our Independence Day!
Today in honor of freedom lift something heavy. Happy America!
