Happy 4th of July !

By Remy Benoit

    It is truly a day to celebrate freedom!

    It is a day to  offer thanks and prayers for those who have given all to protect it.

    It is a day to remember that now those who served, who are serving, deserve not only your  thanks, but your active support.
    I encourage you to send books, magazines, cards to your  local VA Hospitals. Let them  know that you care. Not just today, but send them throughout the year.

    Support legislation that will give them the care they need rather than losing what they have through budget cuts.

    It is also a day to remember:

      Give us your tired, your poor;
      Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...

    It is a day to ask yourself: What as an US citizen and a citizen  of the world do I stand for?

    It is a day to remember that American ends in I CAN.

    What part of the American dream is important to you?

    As you celebrate, contemplate taking a stand.

    God Bless us all.
