Let Freedom Ring

Elliott and I finished watching the HBO mini-series about John Adams this past week. It was fabulous. The sacrifices that were made by the men and women who were inspired by God to
declare their independence from the safety and security of Britain, and even to give their lives in many cases, are so numerous as to be astounding. The Founding Fathers were not perfect, they often did not agree, and they could not foresee all that would be inferred in the Constitution. Still, they managed to set the foundations for a country that for the most part blesses those that live here.

I am grateful to have been born in this great nation. I am grateful that the church I believe to be true is able to function with out threat of tyranny for its beliefs. And I am grateful to God, and his Son, Jesus Christ, for the many blessings they bestow upon my family each and every day.
