Happy 4th!

Happy 4th, from the Busy-Dad-E family to yours!

I hope that you are able to enjoy this day with family and good friends, and maybe some good food and fireworks, too.

Today, we celebrate our INdependence.

And yet our great nation is sliding down the slippery slope of more and more DEpendence.

This November, we face THE most important election of our lifetime.

We're faced with a choice between 2 very different visions of America's future.

And one of those visions is, quite frankly, hostile to (unborn) children, religious freedom, our healthcare system, family values, and the inalienable rights of men and women to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

No less than the American Dream for our children and future grandchild is at stake.

And so today, we pause to show respect and to remember all those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, at home and abroad.

Freedom is never free.  Thank you for giving me the freedom to enjoy my family.  Today, and everyday.

We pray for Americans everywhere.  We pray for America, and for the upcoming election.

Because there's only one choice to keep the American Dream alive.

Otherwise, these words from Star Wars will ring true:

"And so, this is how democracy dies...with thunderous applause."

May God Bless America,


  1. Well said Dad-E.

  2. Good thoughts. Praying our republic will not die.
    I never thought our country would be like this.
    We must wake up before its too late! ~Anne
