On this 4th of July, lets remember what the holiday is about: Independence. Our forefathers sacrificed everything for this country's independence. What a blessing it is to be free! I recently came across the following quote which is a great reminder of what has been done for us. It is also a reminder of our own role in the preservation of freedom.

"Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it."
-John Adams
(in a letter to Mrs. Adams, 1777)
