Celebrate the True Meaning of Freedom on Independence Day
*** begin quote ***
For some, freedom means the right to vote, for others it represents the opportunity for an education. Two months ago the VLB Voices of Veterans Oral History Program launched a video project called “What Freedom Means” as a way to honor our Veterans and military members on this upcoming Independence Day. We asked Texas Veterans, military members and their supporters to share their thoughts and feelings about freedom and why it’s meaningful to them.
*** and ***
All of these ideas about the liberty we enjoy remind us that we owe a lot to our Veterans and military members without whom none of these freedoms would exist. They are proud to wear their uniforms and serve this great nation, and in turn, we are proud to honor and serve them.
On this Fourth of July, as you reflect upon the anniversary of our independence, we ask that you express your gratitude to a Veteran or military member for the great sacrifices they have made for our country.
We wish everyone a safe and happy holiday!

I wonder how many people even think about how many have died or worse to “give” us out “freedom”?
I’m sure all the politicians and bureaucrats will out in force to lead parades. But have been selling us into bondage.
