By all means, have a safe and happy 4th of July. Celebrate this day knowing that it was set aside for you to remember what this nation’s original intent was for liberty, equality and justice for all. Further, that we recognized from our inception that we have God given rights – therefore they are inalienable.
When we started this country we put our trust in the people, not the government and we demanded that government serve us, not the other way around. That’s a pretty fragile concept and it works only as long as “we the people” exercise our authority wisely in order to preserve the idealism that is heritage. That’s what I want to remember this 4th.
