A simple message for this week:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
As you celebrate with family and friends, consider how fortunate we are to be part of this experiment that started less than 250 years ago. It is this experiment that gives me (and everyone else) the freedom to express ourselves without fear of repercussion. (Unless you run afoul of the IRS! I couldn’t resist. It’s amazing how that scandal has been relegated to the back pages.)
Enjoy the time off. I have a feeling we are in for a very interesting second half of the year.
