4th of July

Today is the 4th of July. Having read David McCullough’s 1776 and John Adams I have a greater appreciation for the bravery, faith and commitment that the men had who signed the Declaration of Independence.

As with Veterans Day, I use this day to honor the men who gave years of their lives and sometimes their lives to serve this great nation. We are blessed that there are men and women who are willing to sacrifice everything for the freedoms we enjoy.

We’re going to the 4th of July parade in Monument, CO this morning. It is without a doubt the best 4th of July parade I’ve seen. All the kids and grandkids will be there to enjoy the festivities. Another opportunity for a great family memory.

May God bless you all, and God bless America.
