The Cost of Freedom

Monday, July 04, 2011

Today, we celebrated 'The 4th" with great food, fireworks, family, and friends. But as we prepared food and laughed and celebrated, I stopped and looked at my brother and my stepdad. I realized that I had not thanked them. I didnt thank them for putting their lives on the line to keep me safe and free at home. Many of us will never know those lives that are woven together to provide the blanket of freedom that we sleep under. The families they leave behind often miss holidays because love ones are on duty. Today, I pray for those that do such a brave job of protecting the USA.

God Bless Us All and Keep Sparkin'
