Though times are sensitive and the patriotism to country can be challenging for many, I am glad I get to live, work, serve and love the country where my mother was born, where my dad chose to live, where my sister has prospered and where I am continuously also striving to be a good working citizen. ???? May we remember those that came before us who worked relentlessly and didn't give up hope so that we may taste the freedom that has brought us to where we are now. And may we empower those who are in position to give us and those that will follow us, a good future so that we may prosper as a nation. ?????? Happy 121st Independence Day!
