Independence Day!

Why do we celebrate July 4th?

It should be a question that is quick to answer.

  But did you know that many young people today think it is just a summer break to picnic, party and enjoy fireworks?
We need to remind our children that we are the luckiest people in the world because our fore fathers bravely fought against tyranny for the freedoms that many take for granted today.


The freedoms to have the right to choose where we want to live, say and write what we want and practice any faith we may want,  were fought and won with blood and honor. 

We must never forget.



"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

  As we take time to relax and enjoy this Independence Day, I want to thank all the men and women who still fight to protect those very freedoms here and in places all over the world.

To my friends and neighbors to the north I also want to wish
  them a Happy Canada Day!



  Happy Independence Day America!

What ever you may be doing this long holiday weekend -
enjoy, remember to tell someone you love them, 
 party in moderation and be safe.
