As my family and I get ready to celebrate Independence Day, I cannot help but reflect, and be thankful to our men and women in uniform who fought for, and continue to fight for, our independence and freedoms both at home and abroad. While the 4th of July is a day where we join together to celebrate this country we love so much, it disturbs me that we have witnessed the reemergence of an ideology that attempts to cast those who may not think the same way as somehow being “unpatriotic.”
