The 4th of July parade and celebration in Covington, yesterday, was so much fun! We are blessed to live in such a great nation. We must also always remember that freedom isn’t free. Whether it is our brave men and women in uniform or each of us as private citizens, everyone has a responsibility to protect and advance our “government of the people, by the people, and for the people” in this great land that we call home. Get informed. Get involved. Let’s make America even better! We must never just be satisfied with the progress that we have already achieved. We must push on for even greater progress. This is our birthright as Americans.
