Honoring Our Country
The Fourth of July is a day when we honor our country. We honor those who have gone before us and those who make our country great. From those who founded the United States, to those who fought for our freedoms, to those who immigrated to become part of the fabric of our lives, we salute you.
It occurs to me that there are many heroes we often overlook. Caregivers take time each day to support our aging population and those fighting disease. This part of our society loses many of the freedoms we take for granted. Caregivers help restore those freedoms while improving quality of life. My friend Hass gave his time and energy to support caregivers and those less fortunate – all to honor his brother. Tragically, his brother, a gifted cardiologist, just lost a battle to Parkinson’s disease. Thank you to all the volunteers like Hass in our country.
As the Fourth approaches, look around and consider our heroes and loved ones. Every day we fight prejudice and inequalities. As we face these challenges, consider the words of the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ” we will prevail”. We will continue to build an even greater society, we will cure diseases, we will do our best to fight famine and support people throughout the world. This is our country and these values are reflected in the hearts of our youth. As the fireworks go off, feel proud that we are a nation of freedom, hope and commitment.
Happy Fourth of July!
