Our independence and freedom have come at no small cost. Most can agree that we are enormously thankful for the sacrifices both known and unknown that have been made to supply that independence and freedom.
We have an obligation to treat this gift with some level of reverence. What shall we do with this freedom?

Well said. These are crazy times, for sure. It seems very few politicians are putting the people first, at least not the ones who are getting the air time. All this noise has put a taint on the Fourth of July–at least it seems that way to me–which is a real shame.
It does feel like there is a bit of a cloud. “Air time” is a good point. It is hard to tell if things are close to how presented or if the sharp edges are being over amplified at the exclusion of examples of sanity.
I can’t even rely on television news to give me up-to-date happenings anymore. It’s all the same coverage. And I’m not saying it’s not important coverage–it is–but running through other news stories would sure be a nice change of pace. There are many other things happening in the world. I’d like to hear about some of them.
Completely agree. I want to hear the stories they are covering but wall to wall coverage is a bit much. Surely the rest of the world is still spinning.
I agree Katie…. and to further your point; if two or more people are shouting to get their views across, nothing is changed because ‘nothing can be heard’….. Diane
Yes! Very good point. 8)
