My 4th of July Reminder for You

Today, we celebrate the 4th of July in the USA. And while some of us may think that today is all about the BBQs, parades, and fireworks (all of which I enjoy), today’s #LiveInspired vlog reminds us of the reason we celebrate this day.

In a brave move approximately 240 years ago, our founding fathers wrote “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” so that their children, their children’s children, and their children’s children’s children could have a better, freer life than the on they currently lead.

So today, let’s celebrate their awesome, bold, selfless move, and remember that with the great gifts we’ve been given, there also comes great responsibility.

Enjoy this day and look for ways to share the good with those around you.
