I saw this on Mary’s blog and loved it so much that I had to share it (and when you’re done here, why not go over and check out Mary’s blog … I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I do).
"The American flag does not fly because the wind moves past it. The American flag flies from the last breath of each military member who has died protecting it. American soldiers don't fight because they hate what's in front of them...they fight because they love what's behind them."
Whether your Independence Day is full of fun, family, and food or whether it’s going to be a quiet, restful day, don’t forget to take the time to remember the real reason why we celebrate Independence Day.
