Happy Independence Day!

I live with a modern-day Patriot, in his very own right. The son of a retired Marine Vietnam vet, and as true an American as they come, Junior celebrates July 4th every single day. He regularly reiterates the old adage, "Freedom Isn't Free," and his pride to be American emanates. I am lucky for the constant reminder to appreciate the rights that are secured for us every day, by the men and women who sacrifice their time and lives so that the freedoms American forefathers fought to possess remain in tact. We were more than happy to celebrate such a remarkable day in history, and in turn honor those who made it possible.
