My good friend and trail companion, Joe Murphy and I are atop one of the many mountains we’ve climbed. I am thankful for the freedom I’ve had to pursue my dreams and grateful to those who secure that freedom. I worry about the country’s future now and again though, and am mindful of the words of two gifted American orators, Frederick Douglas and Abraham Lincoln.
“The life of the Nation is secure only while the Nation is honest, truthful and virtuous.”
“My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.”
Happy 4th of July!
