On this Fourth Of July, a day in which we celebrate the birth of this great nation, we must also remember the brave men and women who made this day possible. To everyone who has and are currently serving in the United States Military I say Thank You. What you do day in and day out are what make this country great and me proud to live here. The sacrifices you've made for people whom you will never meet face to face will never be forgotten.
These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived

There was a news story about a military dad who had missed all of his son's first tee ball season, and is now home. They are having a special game today so he gets to watch his son play. That is my favorite story of the day. Better than parades and hot air balloons, and don't tell Little O, but I think that tops the fireworks, too. Hug your families and shake the hand of a veteran today of all days.
