I had the blessing to spend a happy, healthy and safe 4th of July weekend with my family. We went to the beach in Presque Isle, Pennsylvania. We had a cookout. And we watched the fireworks.
Just a typical holiday weekend...
We had the quintessential American holiday, something many take for granted. I am cognizant of the blessing of it all because four people were shot about a mile away from where my family and thousands of others watched the fireworks.
Things to remember...
There are lessons here. Here are a few that come to mind.
- Cherish liberty. However, cherish those you claim to love more.
- Tell them that you love them.
- Embrace them whenever you can.
- Put safety first.
- Above all else, be conscious of your blessings and take nothing for granted.
