Happy Fourth of July!

"America's fighting men and women sacrifice much to ensure that our great nation stays free. We owe a debt of gratitude to the soldiers that have paid the ultimate price for this cause, as well as for those who are blessed enough to return from the battlefield unscathed." - Allen Boyd

Most Americans see Fourth of July as a day to get drunk, light some fireworks, and celebrate, and although we should be celebrating, a lot of people forget the reason we celebrate the Fourth: to celebrate our independence. Fourth of July also reminds me of all the troops that have served our great country and those who are currently serving. I wanted to use this post to show my thanks for all the men and women who are serving/have served our country: your courage and strength is appreciated!

I'm not saying that we shouldn't go all out and celebrate, I'm just saying we shouldn't forget why we're celebrating. And with that, have a great Fourth of July and be safe!
