Happy 4th Of July

As we celebrate the men and women who've fought for our nation's freedom throughout
every branch of our military. Including
those who still fight for us daily overseas. I am grateful for their bravery,
sacrifices and their supportive families.
When my younger brother Roy was enlisted in
the US army two things crossed my mind. He will always be safe by the power of prayer of millions of people around the world. Secondly I wanted to join the service. But after a brief discussion about my decision
on one of his brief visits. He suggested that I didnt do it. Especially since he knows how sensitive I am. But if I had join the service. I would've join the US Marines and without sounding shallow. As a youngwoman I was always a softy for their uniform. White top hat, sharp suit, white gloves and sword. But I joined a different
Army. Equipped with skits, dresses and a badge for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. So today's holiday has had me thinking of how we all need freedom in our lives. Both from oppressing countries that venture to control their people and the opposition that keeps us away from God. Today Im more alert of why appreciating our freedoms across the board and for those who fight for us should never be taken for granted.
