It was a capital Capitol 4th! As a homeschool mom, what a heart swell I experienced watching my son on PBS enjoy – and I mean ENJOY! – the Capitol 4th celebration in Washington DC!
He is up there for a 10-week internship, hoping to find full-time employment in the field of journalism for liberty.
We are down here cheering him on!
Liberty is Year-Round
Most of us celebrate our country a few times a year, and many of us vote in November, but did you know liberty is a year-round endeavor?
There are forces at work that have slowly been stripping our rights – and they are exponentially speeding up.
I’m not a conspiracy theorist. I’m not a right- or left-wing extremist. I’m an aproned mom, concerned about our country’s future.
Let’s take that power – and responsibility – seriously.
What Can We Do?
- Pray, but don’t stop there.
- Write your representatives.
- Speak up about the value of liberty.
- Support our military.
- Stay informed. (My son is interning in journalism with Watchdog.org. You might take a look at what is really going on in our nation.)
- Research the candidates.
- Vote wisely.
God wants that job.
And He offers freedom, rather than strips us of it.
To all of America, I wish you:
Happy 7th of July!
A great day, like every day, to celebrate
– and stand up for – our independence!
