There's a lot of history around the 4th of July, and in all truth it only marks the beginning of a long and difficult struggle to freedom from British rule. It was a movement that half of the people at the time didn't even agree with. And declaring freedom was a lot easier than winning it - we should thank Gens. Washington, Green, and Knox in large part for that. But it was a starting point and one to be remembered and revered, along with the sacrifices of so many other people with The Glorious Cause. Take time to say a little thank you on the 4th. We have a lot of challenges to get things on track in the U.S. Let's hope tomorrow's leaders find their own glorious calling by working together to strengthen our common future.
