Happy Independence Day

July4th03_bigToday is Independence Day in the United States. This is when we celebrate the day our founding fathers declared Independence from Great Britain. We also celebrate our values of freedom and democracy.

Traditionally, the day is marked by fireworks celebrations and displaying the US flag. Other ways I have celebrated the day include: offering extra prayers for our nation, our troops, and our leaders, and offering up my daily sacrifices on behalf of our nation.

We are also grilling out today and having some family over. Happy 4th of July!
