Happy Independence Day, Americans all. While I can't enjoy the festivities to the same extent as many of you back in the United States. I can indulge myself in a little contemplation on the subject of freedom.
I honestly believe that the founding fathers were great men. Courageous men who took no small risk when they gathered to sign the Declaration of Independence.

Yet for all the risk, they had it easy. While they fought for our freedom we have to fight to keep it. There are those - and they are not necessarily foreign- who work very hard to deprive us of or at the very least curtail; the rights that thousands of Americans gave their lives to protect.

Happy birthday America!
