Today we celebrate our national independence! As we enjoy our time with friends and family, let us not forget the price paid for our freedoms. Fifty-six men courageously pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor in establishing this beautiful nation! While there are some today who want to diminish their value and focus on their flaws; we will revere their accomplishments and their courage, we will recognize – as our founders did – that our Nation has been blessed and protected by divine providence. May we renew our commitment in protecting and defending our God-given rights, and may we never allow those who wish to erase our history to erode the greatness of our Nation – the last beacon of hope! May you have a safe and blessed Independence Day!

“God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever.” – Thomas Jefferson
