God Bless America!

As we approach the Fourth of July and prepare for all the BBQs, picnics, bonfires and fireworks, it is a great time to reflect on the amazing things that our country stands for... freedom, life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and so much more.  We thank our troops for protecting us here and abroad and pray for their safety.  We thank our forefathers for standing up for what they believed in and we hope that generations now and to come remember that those brave men and women gave their lives so many years ago to protect our freedom.

We will celebrate July 4th with my family in our home in Bend, Oregon.  We look forward to the parade, the streets lined with red, white and blue bunting, decorated porches and all the folks waiving American flags.  And most importantly, we thank God that we have the freedom to celebrate together.

I leave you with words that I  cherish on the 4th of July and every day of the year.

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty, and justice for all."

God Bless America!
