Another 4th

Here, in America, it is the fourth of July. Flags are out,  parades will be held throughout the land and there will be fireworks tonight. All this to celebrate a courageous experiment that resulted in this unique country. The main goal of all this was to provide freedom which, if you read bumper stickers, you know isn't free.

So, a moment to remember and thank those that made it all possible. Some, sadly, made the ultimate sacrifice and only live on in memories of families and loved ones. Happily, many came home, and we greet one another with nods of an underlying knowing of the preciousness of this day.

Stay safe, be well and savour your freedom.

Paddle safe...
