Happy Independence Day to all!
As we ring in freedom with family, friends, burgers and fireworks, we’d like to take a minute to acknowledge our Pledge of Allegiance.
Our nation was built on the ideals of liberty and justice for all. And while we have had our faults and failures in upholding these principles throughout history, we continue to work towards the defense of liberty and justice for all individuals – that each may enjoy these basic principles.
We are one nation under God. But we must remember - all nations are under God, for He loves and guides us all in pursuit of peace, liberty and justice around the world.
Take a moment today to be grateful for your freedoms, and remember our brothers and sisters in Haiti who confront challenges every day in their fight for their rights.
