The Price of Freedom

The Price of Freedom
What is the price of freedom? To some it is greater than others. Some give their sons and 
daughters while others give their lives. While we celebrate with fried chicken and watermelon and listen to the pops and whistles of fireworks some people hear real explosives. Instead of their children screaming
and playing under the water sprinklers they hide in shelters in fear for their lives. We are so blessed.
We have so much but for sure at a price. Thank you soldiers thank you all who have served so that
we can celebrate in peace. Thank you to all you mom's and dad's who have prayed for your children...for my children who have gone far far away to protect us. Happy 4th and may we embrace peace...
I planned ahead and painted this dog for each of you to help us remember the Red, the White, and Blue.
