This is America.
As we celebrate our freedom,
let's remember to not just leave it to the troops,
the politicians, the religious leaders or the media - but to maintain our rights
by carefully making our own choices....
and upholding the rights
of those we do not agree with.
Figure out what you believe in.
Be willing to stand, speak
and also listen.
Have lots and lots of fun,
and be sure to celebrate the good stuff.
