I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July celebration. For the first time Drew and I were able to share the festivities with two of our grandchildren. It’s a time to take pride in my United States, get all goose-bumpy during the patriotic music and relish the special time with family and friends.

Reflection on all that was sacrificed, so many lives lost through the years to not only establish but maintain our country and way of life, gave way to reflection on our country today and the many problems and challenges with which we are faced.
