Celebrating Independence Day

As our nation celebrates Independence Day this July 4th, let's remember it was independence, not dependence, that made our nation great.

With unemployment rates the highest our nation has seen in decades and uncertainty on the horizon, we must never forget strength, growth and independence came from hard work and a desire to live free from unfair and over-burdensome government.

Each generation must keep alive the ability for the next to achieve bigger and bolder dreams. This July 4th, we should spend some thoughtful reflection as to the legacy we are leaving the next generation of Americans and if we are elevating their opportunities and our nation.

We should thank God for the blessings He has given and ask for wisdom to preserve them for those that follow.

"Liberty is dearly bought, continually paid for, and difficult to keep." From a book by E. C. McKenzie - author unknown.
As you and your family enjoy the grand 4th of July festivities and fireworks shows, remember independence rests on all of our shoulders. God Bless America and the great State of Texas.
