Today, we celebrate the 4th of July.
As a new Air Force mom, I am looking at this holiday from a different perspective.
Today, when I think of the founding of this country, I am beyond thankful.
Thousands of people made the brave decision in the early days of the founding of this country by going against the tide to secure this nation’s freedom.
Over the years, countless citizens have sacrificed their time and, ultimately for many, their lives, to ensure that we continue to enjoy our freedom.
Several times during Rooster’s graduation weekend, we had the privilege of hearing new Airmen recite the Airman’s Creed.
It matters not the color of the uniform or the creed spoken. Each branch of the military consists of self-giving individuals.
I think I used to take this for granted.
I no longer do so.
As you celebrate, take a moment to lift our country’s servicemen and women in your prayers. It is because of those who blazed the trail all of those many years ago and those who presently serve that we continue to live in the Land of the Free and the Brave.
