and i am proud to be an american...

As the rain begins to drizzle, the sound of fireworks can be heard throughout the neighborhood.

Americans are celebrating the independence of this great country.

And while there is division over the government, disagreements about the war, and the economic decline is affecting many households, the freedoms we are blessed with should be held dear to us and celebrated.

I pray that between the barbecues, the sports events, the gathering of friends, we all will take the time to give thanks that we are so blessed and that we have the freedoms to light up the skies declaring our FREEDOM this 4th if July.
