It's July 4th and our 4th episode! Thank you for joining us on our journey to educate all the generations since we are living our lives in the same, real time. Independence Day is a celebration of our nation becoming free, independent,but united states. We've morphed it into ways to get together and celebrate freedom but we should remember that it is a national reminder that we need to renew our appreciation for our freedom. We should all acknowledge those that have gone out of their way to physically defend out country and maintain our security. Thank you to all those who serve our country whether on the front lines and those who support them! As we know our freedoms are not always free and we as individual citizens have had to fight for our own freedoms. How we choose to fight for ourselves, for our families, or for others who cannot is a personal choice. Being an activist starts with being active. Below are 3 simple ways to get started. Be thoughtful, respectful, and open minded as you go out and stand up for what you believe is right.
