This 4th of July I celebrate the continuing independence of the United States of America. I honor those many individuals who sacrificed in diverse ways so this independence and freedom might exist. Likewise, I honor those who continue in their stead, preserving the precious human gifts this country boasts and cherishes. Acknowledge that your opportunities were won and are still preserved by the spilling of blood and by the sacrifice of good souls. Refuse to take this truth for granted.
"Years ago, a group of good, wise, brave, God-fearing men stood up to claim and defend the human right for independence. Those men are now dead. Their work is not. If good, wise, brave, God-fearing men fail to stand up in their stead, that independence will cease to exist."
