Happy Birthday, America!

“Courage, then, my countrymen, our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty.” – Samuel Adams

Give thanks this day for the freedoms and rights that are given to us by the Constitution of this great country. Give thanks for those who sacrificed their lives and livelihoods at its inception, and those who have done so and do so today on the battlefields and in the conflicts, past and present, in which we have been forced to engage.

“The care of human life and its happiness and not its destruction is the chief and only object of a good government.” -Thomas Jefferson

As we celebrate our freedom this Independence Day we would do well to remember the millions of Americans whose freedom has been taken away in this country and pray for its restoration.
