The Fourth is a very special time of year by the river. It's a time to spend with family and friends. It reminds us how blessed we are to live in a country where we can respectfully express our opinions. Sometimes I think we forget how important that respect is. I was taught to always let someone finish their thought and to always be gracious to someone whether I agree with them or not.
It is not always about whether someone is right or wrong. They do have the right to be heard. Our country was founded on debate and expression. Let's enjoy the Fourth in the Spirit that has made our country great.
Wishing everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July weekend.
