This is a fantastic time to celebrate with our families and to remember our Founders who gave of their fortunes and even their lives. As a 3rd generation citizen I heard the story of my granddad spending over 30 days in bottom of a ship landing at Ellis Island before settling at Lincoln, Ne. We have been wonderfully blessed with a bountiful country and even give thanks to GOD for the prosperity and dreams we can dream that can become reality. Pray in our time of celebration our children will be reminded of their eventual time to continue the tradition and to be thankful. Thankful people are a great people and recognize we are still not perfect but respectfully try to improve our country.
