Happy Fourth of July!

Recent events around the world have made me appreciate the freedoms that we have here in the U.S. and in many other countries around the world.

Yet for some people, freedom of speech, freedom to take photos, the ability to travel freely around and the freedom to blog and share these experiences are just wishful thinking. I can only pray and hope that one day they, too, will experience these same freedoms.

I hope you are enjoying a GREAT 4th of July.

Yes. we who live in North America are sooooo fortunate, aren't we? Canada just celebrated it's national birthday on July 1st, so our country's birthdays are very close together.

Well said Janie. We tend to take for granted our freedoms and independence.
