To my fellow Americans, Happy Independence Day! There is a significant amount of apathy and discontent throughout the country right now, but hopefully all of us can take the day to remember the sacrifices made by those who stood on the front lines to defend us from our enemies. May God bless us and our country for years to come. If peace does not come to pass, life has proven that even enemies can sit down to play a game of chess.
