Hope everyone is having a great 4th of July. As with most patriotic holidays, it's a good time to remember all the people who have made sacrifices to keep America free and give everyone the independence to express their beliefs without fear of reprisal. And at this tumultuous time, that's a freedom we should cherish because there is a movement brewing around this world attempting to deprive us of those freedoms.
Regardless of your beliefs, remember that there is a group of extremists who believe it is their destiny to create a global Islamic state. That is the prime objective of the Islamic fanatics who continue to terrorize anyone who does not hold their extreme ideology.
We must stay vigilent and continue to fight for those freedoms that so many have given their lives for in past generations. Otherwise we will find ourselves, and our children, stripped of those freedoms and living in repression...don't believe for one minute that such an outcome isn't possible.
