Independence Day

Liberty. Freedom. Equality. Inalienable Rights. Justice.

Eagle at Toledo Zoo
Along with your fireworks and picnics, be sure to remember the people who made this great country possible. Remember the people fighting to keep us safe.

A neighbor kid down the street just came and told me he leaves for Iraq in two weeks. I can't picture him being a Marine yet, much less wrap my brain around the idea of him heading into a war. A friend's husband is there, in Baghdad, as well. Most of us probably know someone there, or know of someone who has been sent to Iraq or Afghanistan. Regardless of how one feels about the mess in Iraq, I don't know anyone, myself included, who doesn't want our troops home safely. It is possible to be against the conflict and still be supportive of the troops.

Hold them in your thoughts and prayers, friends.
