A national holiday, a time for BBQs, family fun, camping and watching the fireworks. But let us not forget the real reason for the existence of July 4th: it is to honor and celebrate those brave men who fought for our freedom from what was believed to be a tyrant, the British King.
We have our freedom because they fought for it. We are able to worship God because our forefathers fought for it. So in all of our celebrating today, let us not forget the cost of our freedom and who we really are, a freed nation under God.
