When I look back at this nation founded by tyranny and continuing through triumph. I look at what make this nation what it is. Yeah we have had many dark times in our history from slavery, civil war, and our treatment of each other. But through those times that's when great men rose from the ashes and signifying what made this nation great. The red, white, and the blue, symbolic of a diverse nation bound by the desire to make a country that we can leave for the next generation. A nation that was paved by the blood of the sacrifices of the brave men and women from many walks of life. Christian, Muslim, Jews, Hindu, Buddhist, black, white, Hispanic, Democrat, or Republics, all setting aside their views for the ultimate mission. To fight for this great freedom. The freedom to love, freedom to worship, freedom to protest, and freedom to make change. As we celebrate the birth of our nation let's not forget about the men and women who fought to make this moment possible. Please save this link and make a donation to the Semper Fi Fund.
