Tomorrow is Independence Day, and if you are like many Americans, you have already bought a wealth of fire crackers, sparklers and other fireworks to celebrate the day.
Many simply prefer to quietly contemplate the thought of what it truly means to be an American in The United States of America.
If my soul could hold a sparkler or candle it would for the countries who are still fighting for their freedoms, no matter how small.
I salute the many veterans who have sacrificed their lives and limbs to allow me and you and all your neighbors to hold those sparklers and to enjoy the festivities.
God bless America and I wish you all, no matter what your religious beliefs, to be safe, be healthy and enjoy tomorrow, however you celebrate.
