Happy Fourth of July, America. On this anniversary of our independence, it’s important to thank those who make it all possible.
They are our friends, our neighbors, our co-workers, our teachers, our congressmen, our local small business people, our family. They possess something that defines the American spirit: a willingness to defend it all costs, especially their own. Fiercely independent, they are also just as generous, overwhelmingly brave and most incredibly, very humble.
When you thank a veteran, they will most often look at you kindly and say, “My pleasure.” It’s always hard to believe that, but they say it’s true.
A big thank-you to all of our veterans this Fourth of July. You make our country possible.
