Of course the United States of America isn’t perfect. But it is our home, blesses us and is a shining light in a world filled with darkness. As we celebrate our nation’s birth, take time to give thanks for those who have made this great experiment in freedom possible, sacrificed so we might experience blessings we too often take for granted and made our nation a beacon of hope for all. Even more importantly, make a commitment to do what you can to ensure we remain one nation under God, with liberty and justice for all.
