I’ve been busy away from this site either because of content for other sites on the internet or personal responsibilities such as preparing a big flower bed with limited resources. Folks, for all your hard work gardening, taking care of yourself, and economizing, take time out of this day to remember the troops that died for the freedom of America. Take time to embrace family members that fought and survived in wars to protect you even to this day.
You could be political to the people that fought for your freedom on social issues, you could show vitriol for the way they treat you, but please show respect for the people that fought for your freedom. You have to love them, but you don’t have to like them for political and social reasons. It’s all right to disagree with people, but do not disrespect their contributions for your freedom.
Enjoy the outdoors, splurge if you wish to pay respects to the American troops by barbecuing. July 4, 1776 isn’t just another day in the annals of history, it was a day where Colonial Americans were fed up with society as we knew it. Things may be different in America from a social standpoint, but we must forget the things of old, and “Old Glory” is one of them. We could express our Constitutional rights with flags of racism, but we must respect “Old Glory” for bringing us close in a country where in-fighting drags us down.
My point is that do not let yourself be angry over the things of old and be appreciate toward the veterans even if you don’t agree with them. Thank you for your time and Happy Independence Day.
