Happy 4th of July!

America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand. Harry S Truman

Be careful in your celebrations today! Remember what this country is all about, and do your part to uphold that! Live a little, enjoy some BBQ, watch some fireworks shoot off (from a safe distance) and just celebrate the day for what it is – the birth of this nation’s independence πŸ™‚

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day, guys. I grew up the daughter of a military man – Air Force and then National Guards, and my dad, among all our others military service members, are my inspiration and my heroes. I know this day is “unofficially” the start of summer, but please take a moment to really reflect and respect the sacrifices that were made, are made, and will continue to be made.

As always, with great respect and honor, Happy Memorial Day πŸ™‚

– one extremely grateful, thankful American citizen
