Far From Home

There are many things about the government of United States that I find 'just wrong'.

But...... I have the opportunities available to me to help change that...... If I so choose. I do believe in our republic, even with all of its faults.

Even though we are in the midst of a war that I disagree with, I do support the men and women who are involved in it, giving their lives because our government asked them to. I support their families who live with the daily fear that they may never see them again, who would give anything to be sharing a fireworks display with them next Tuesday.

So celebrate our Independence Day, celebrate the fact that we have the right to choose how we live, what we say, who we want to be, with them in mind.
