Today I am overly grateful for those who defend our country so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we do. It is because of those brave individuals I was able to enjoy a day off work and spend the day going to the Zoo and waterpark. 

It bothers me when people say “Happy” 4th of July. It’s not really a “happy” holiday. We have this because of all the people who gave their lives for our independence. And no, I actually do not have anyone in my family in the military or have lost anyone.. but to me that just doesn’t seem right.

So thank you to all of those wonderful and brave people who helped us gain our independence and allowing me to have one of the best days I have had in actually long time with my family. I know that you all don’t get the thanks that you deserve, so I just want you to know that I appreciate everything you have done/do for our country.
