Anyone who knows me is aware that I am fiercely patriotic. I always have been, and I always will be. And that is why Independence Day is always a very special occasion for me and my family.
It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the immense gratitude that we feel to all of the men and women — past and present — who have served and defended our country in various ways; some of whom made the ultimate sacrifice. We owe these heroes a debt that we can never repay, and we honor them in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers.
It is also an opportunity to celebrate and cherish living in the greatest country in the history of the world. Yes, we have challenges. But we also have the courage, the conviction, and the competence to solve and overcome whatever stands in our way. In America, nothing is impossible. We are a nation of dreamers and doers. We do not sit back and watch history unfold. We rise up and make history happen.
Honestly, I think many people take our freedoms, our opportunities, and our way of life for granted. I often think that the best thing that could happen to these people is if they could take a trip around the world, and witness with their own eyes some of the shocking injustices, restrictions, and oppression that billions of individuals beyond our borders experience on a daily basis. I am 100% convinced that these people would literally kiss the ground when they returned to American soil. Sometimes, we do not know what we have until it is gone.
And so, on this Independence Day, I will be cherishing our heroes, and I will be celebrating our country. And I know that my fellow patriots will be doing the same. I hope that you and yours will join us, as we emerge from the pandemic, and get ready to write the next impressive, inspiring, and illuminating chapter in the history of a truly great nation.
All my best,
Nicky Smith, President
