Having just spent a chunk of time in a far away land (which there will be much to say about soon) where governments operate at a different level of consciousness, I couldn't be more grateful this fourth of July holiday.
I'm filled with gratitude for freedoms and governments who care. I'm grateful for every department. Sanitation, wildlife, agriculture, transportation, health, welfare, environmental, child protection services. So often we express alternative views on issues within each. We stand on opposite sides of the aisle. But far and wide, I think we'd agree that a country built on inherent rights and eternal principles is something of a marvelous blessing.
