July 4th: Because of the Brave

Home of the Free

Hi guys. I know I haven’t posted in a long time…blogger fail, I know. But, I wanted to post today because, well, it’s important. 241 years ago today, we declared our freedom from Britain. Our thirteen colonies came together to throw back our oppressors, to fight for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…

I believe with every ounce of my being that the United States of America is a nation blessed by God. I believe that the USA is here for a reason, many reasons in fact. But the only reason we are here at all is because of the greatness and wisdom of our Lord and Savior and the bravery and courage of those who have fought for us. 

So, today I say thank you to every person who has fought for this country. The soldiers, marines, politicians, lawyers, police officers, firefighters, federal agents, accountants, janitors, and soccer moms. Thank you to all the fathers’, sons’, mothers’, daughters’…every single American who has every given something up to protect, raise up, or empower our nation.

Thank you to every single person who has been brave enough to stand up and shout the truth and when necessary fight for it. To all those who sacrificed their lives, whether that be dying on a battlefield, pursuing criminals, or giving everything to the children who are our future. 

This is the land of the free because of the brave. So who are the brave? I am the brave, you are the brave, we are the brave. So don’t ever stop fighting for freedom, righteousness, love and hope. Never stop fighting for goodness! Never stop remembering those who made it that way, and always be brave! 

Happy 4th of July
