July 4, 2009: Freedom Marches On…

July 4, 2009 | NeW Staff

Happy Independence Day!  Between fireworks and backyard barbeques, we must take time today to think about our soldiers abroad.  They are risking their lives so that people in other countries can experience the same freedoms we take for granted everyday.  Some of these men and women have given the ultimate sacrifice in pursuit of this goal.  Those, who have been so faithful in their service, must not be forgotten.  These men and women are our sisters, brothers, sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers. 

Independence Day means more to me now than any previous July 4th, as my own brother, Nick, is in Iraq diligently and bravely completing his service.  I am proud of him and all of our soldiers. For their incredible service we say, thank you.
