The Gift of Freedom

This week, as we reflect on the 4th of July, let us remember what a privilege it is to live in a free nation. Let us pause to remember to sacrifices of so many who fought and died to ensure our liberties. And, let us continue to pray for those soldiers and their families serving America today.

The gift of freedom is great, but so is the price. It is important that we elect representatives who will make tough decisions to preserve our freedoms and protect our homeland.
