On a day where we celebrate our country’s independence, my thoughts are scattered. I am so proud to be part of this country, and take pride in who we are. But we are also so young, and could learn so much from those countries who have been around for thousands of years. My prayer is that we will continue, knowing that we are free, but also can learn from others.
It’s another day and another opportunity to help others. It’s definitely a day to celebrate, but I also think about those who may be hurting and have other things on their mind. It’s days like today that I am especially thankful for all that I have been given and especially mindful of those who need something to celebrate.
