Stars and Stripes and You've Got to Stand for Something: A Legacy for Our Children


 As July 4th approaches I think about where we are and what we will leave for our children. Being an American feels like being a parent. I love this country. I don't always love what it does. It's hard to come to terms with the fact that we aren't perfect. Our parents inherited a nation with troubles in their time and we will continue that legacy. It would be easy to let sadness take over. However, we as individuals have the power to change things. We aren't helpless and we are a responsible people. We can't let fear or hopelessness take control of us. Our nation is founded on liberty. We have the liberty to stand up for what we believe in whether it's the popular choice or not. We have the right to raise our kids in an environment of our choosing. We have the dignity not to give up. This is our time, not our parents and not the future generations'. What we do with our time will make the difference in this nation. Every July 4th we celebrate our independence. We are free to choose. What will you choose for you and yours?
