Happy 4th of July! Independence day has always been one of my favorite holidays. As a kid I loved decorating my bike with streamers, construction paper and glitter to ride in my city parade. Now I love being with friends/family, barbecue, summer activities and of course fireworks! One of my favorite things about the 4th of July is the opportunity to reflect on how we became a country. I am obsessed with history and have visited Williamsburg twice because I love the colonial look of the city and all of the history that happened there. I’m so grateful for my freedom and for the privilege I have to freely express my opinions and practice religion. It is truly a blessing to be able to have these freedoms. Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?” Our freedoms give us purpose and is something to protect and cherish. What freedom are you especially grateful for this year?
