Happening throughout the world are battles between governments, people groups dedicated to a single cause, waring fractions and splinter organizations committed to their political points of view. Some of these battles are being fought on religious grounds and beliefs.
Throughout the history of the world we have seen these types of events and we in the United States of America have our history beginning with such a conflict with a declaration of our independence from Great Britain in 1776.
The birth of America was an idea of a free and independent nation that allowed her citizens to live freely, to worship God supremely and to do so without undue restriction and ternary. The freedom that was carved out between our founding father’s also included the freedom to no worship God but there was no doubt in the responsibility of citizenship that was to be embraced no matter one’s political or religiously held beliefs.
Freedom is a word that creates images of sacrifice, dedication and great cost in my mind. Freedom is the word that defines America and the rights of her citizens too. On this 4th of July while enjoying the fireworks, watermelon, and reunions remember that this date is a historical date that deserves our reflection and a thought of our individual duty as citizens to build positively on the foundation that was laid by those before us. I pray for America and that our next history will record our unity to Country, Citizenship and Cause that waves proudly the Red, White and Blue.
