The 4th of July is a time for cookouts, parades, and fireworks. BUT it is also a time to stop and reflect on this wonderful country of ours. It is a time to remember the foundation and principles that our country was built on. And above all, it is a time to remember the courage of the brave men and women of the armed forces. Take time today to appreciate these sacrifices so that we many enjoy and celebrate freedom on a daily basis.
