Happy American Independence Day/4th of July.
Hope you get to celebrate in your style today American Independence Day and the freedoms that our founders claimed that were endowed on us as humans by our creator. Keeping these freedoms is an ever enduring process and is not just now being threatened.
We have a democratic republic which was the experiment our founders gave us and as Ben Franklin said it is each generation's responsibility to keep. In a democratic republic we elect representatives to act in our best interests and work together to advance our society which often means compromise and not getting everything we want.
Enjoy the concerts, fireworks, pool parties, food and remember what we are celebrating.
I am proud to be an American and will enjoy a Wright Brothers concert and fireworks in Carmel Indiana tonight.
DwightTO SUBSCRIBE This is a little article I am doing across the Internet of my personal opinions. This reflects my personal thoughts. I try to write several times a month on a variety of subjects. It may be religious at times, political at times, and at other times just my reactions on something happening out there. It will often be like an op-ed article. If I do what I intend, you will at times want to shout I agree, other times you will want to say Dwight has really lost it now, but most importantly I want to challenge you to think. Feel free to forward this to others. If you don't want to get this e-mail let me know. Feel free to use what you read from me, but I request you give me credit and send a tear sheet if published in a newspaper or magazine. Thanks.
