Good Morning, I hope and pray that all of my fellow Active Rainer's and Americans have a fantastic 4th of July weekend. There are a number of people suffering all around us and it would be nice to see everyone stop and reflect on how wonderful it is to live in this country. We live in a country where our poorest of poor have higher standards of living than 85 percent of the rest of the world. I do not want to seem like I am not sympathetic to the suffering of fellow Americans, I just want to redirect our focus this weekend to the things we do have.
We live in a country where you still have the right to speak out against our government and where we can hold our elected officials accountable for the things they say or do. Most countries do not give their citizens this right and when they do it is a farce and corrupt in nature.
We live in a country where we can disagree with one another and still live as neighbors and countrymen without fear of harm or for our safety.
We live in a country that is by far the most generous and giving country in the world. When a country experiences a tragedy, who is the first to show up to help? Whether the country is Muslim, catholic, Hindu or any other religion. We as Americans look past all of that and come to aid those that are in need. No other countries do this consistently.
We live in a country that pulls together and puts aside political disagreements or racial divides to unite against a common enemy.
I can go on and on, but I will keep this short. When you think things are bad for you right now, just remember that it could be a whole lot worse. Imagine if you were in countries like Iran, North Korea, Syria, China, Afghanistan, Iraq, Cuba, Venezuela I can go on and on.
I hope and pray that this weekend is a blessed one for all of you.
God Bless this great country this 4th of July and Thank the Lord that there were brave and courageous men and women who risked their lives for our Independence and deliverance from tyranny over 200 years ago.
