Celebrate Freedom

Share your love

As we celebrate the 4th of July with friends, family, and fireworks, don’t forget to take a moment to be grateful for the freedom and liberties that this date represents. While everything in America might not be perfect, it represents an idea and lifestyle that is perfect. We have the right to worship as we please, free speech to speak out against those things we disagree with, and the right to vote for changes we believe will be better. We live in a country where you can voice your opinions, without fear of being jailed, which ensures that all voices can be heard. It does not mean that if someone does not agree with your opinion, that they are wrong. It means they have a different opinion, and that’s what makes America great. Life without fear of retribution. Waking up each day, knowing that you and your family are safe, and that there are countless opportunities for those who are willing to work hard and do what it takes to succeed.

Something to Think About
Over the years I have met many people who moved here from another part of the world or have traveled to other parts of the world. For those who have moved her from a part of the world where they lived in fear, or hunger, they say that they don’t need a special day to celebrate America, they wake up every day thankful to be here. Something we should all do.

Weekly Activity
