With today being the 4th of July, which happens to be my favorite holiday, I am feeling extremely grateful and proud to be an American. I was raised to be patriotic and proud. How did I get to be blessed to live in such a beautiful and free nation? Our forefathers were inspired men of God. Men who fought for what they believed in and won because if was what was suppose to happen. I am so incredible grateful to live in a country that I can live and practice freedom of religion. A religion that makes me who I am. I'm grateful for the men and women who have served this country and will serve this country, my brother is one of those men and I couldn't be more proud of him. I hope we can all remember what took place in the creation of this country. I am truly grateful for my freedoms and all that I have! Happy 4th of July and God bless America!!
