Happy Independence Day
To all of you in the US, and those Americans currently residing in other countries, I’d like to wish you and yours a very happy Independence Day (or, as my friends in the UK like to call it, "Getting Rid of the Colonies Day"). May your beer be cold, your barbecue spicy, and your fireworks explosive.
For all of my friends currently serving in the military, both at home and abroad, my hearfelt thanks for all you do for us. Freedom isn’t free and you pay the highest price of all so the rest of us don’t have to. Your sacrifice is appreciated in ways that we can never fully express. God bless you.
