What a joy to write to you on this July 4 weekend. Why? Because here we stand. Still. It’s miracle that we, as 13 struggling colonies, ever made it to this amazing creation known as the United States of America.
Have you had the chance to read 1776 by David McCulough? If not, why not make it a goal of yours to accomplish that challenge by election day this November. I listened to the book on CD during some of my commutes as well as a long road trip. I was riveted. Story after story. I promise…it won’t put you to sleep. And you’ll learn things you have NEVER heard before and details you won’t get in school.images
Here’s a small one. The vote for independence of the 13 colonies were 12 voting YES and one abstention. Do you know which state abstained?
With that, here’s to faith, family and freedom.
And to you, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
A very HAPPY 4th to you.
