Independence Day

Monday, July 4, 2011

Happy 4th of July, friends!!

I hope each one of you has a wonderful day celebrating our Independence and Freedom.

I'll admit I often taken my citizenship in the USA for granted. 
Recently I finished a heart wrenching book that reminded me just how blessed I am
to live in a country that allows me freedom of speech, freedom of religion, equality among men and women, and more.

All across the the word there are men, women and children suffering without these same rights. I highly recommend you take a moment to read Half the Sky. It's a remarkable book that will open your eyes, pierce your heart, and leaves you grateful and inspired.

And unlike many other social welfare books it's a very interesting and entertaining read. I even got RJ to read it and he finished it in 3 days - which could possible be a record for him.

Tomorrow we are celebrating the dear ol' USA with a children's parade, hot dogs, good friends, BBQ, and Landon's first fireworks. 

I can't wait to see the look on his face!!! (And hopefully not too much fear in his eyes!)

My little patriot at least years festivities
