We all like to get out and have fun on the 4th of July...but please keep in mind all that has gone on in the past to get us our independence. All those that fought so hard for us. My father was in the Navy in WWII. MY Brother was in Vietnam and thank God he came home. Many didn't. And how about all those lost in Iraq and Afghanistan. And those that fought and came home but things still are not what they were for them.

I want to have fun today and this weekend just like everyone else, but let's just keep these things in mind.  And in the words of the late Michael Conrad from Hill Street Blues.."let's be careful out there."
