I don’t know if we can fully appreciate the fight that was fought in our favor…the war that was brought to our homes and the blood that was shed for freedom. As an American I am proud to call myself one of the risk takers. The Founding Fathers took a huge risk when they decided to cut themselves off from Great Britain, the country that sponsored their lives. Choosing to go it on your own instead of staying under the umbrella of those rich and powerful is always a gamble. Yet it paid off and for that I am grateful. Happy 4th of July and may be never take for granted the freedoms that were given us!
