Happy 228th to the U.S.A.
As we celebrate, stuffing our faces with hot dogs and french fries, throwing back the beers and Cokes, or as we power shop the sales, let’s not forget our military members who have been plopped down in various places over the world to protect our interests and to serve our country.
Whether we agree with the cause or not, our troops deserve, at the very least, our thanks and appreciation for the risks they take on our behalf, and our best wishes and prayers for their safety. They are someone’s sons, someone’s daughters; someone’s husband or wife or father or mother. For many of us, they are friends.
Party on! It is a birthday, after all!
