Today is July 4th and for all us Americans besides a birthday to celebrate it gives us so much to think about, reflect on and be thankful for. We are so fortunate to live in this great nation. After all it is the nation which gives us the opportunity to try and better ourselves and in more ways than just materially for so many generations. There are many that sacrificed themselves so the rest of us may live more securely and prosperously.
