“America, America, God shed His grace on thee, and crown thy good with brotherhood from Sea to shining Sea!”
Such beautiful words that give us pride, hope and reverence. It always seems to be an everlasting statement for whatever is occurring with our Nation.
As we celebrate America’s Birthday, I reflect on our Freedoms, I am always reminded that Freedom isn’t free. My Grandfather, William Thomas Housholder was a WWII Fighter Pilot who gave his life for just those freedoms. Two weeks after he went off to war, not leaving Luke Air Force Base, but actually from the Goodyear Naval Air Base, my father was born.
Sadly, Grandfather never held his only child, but he knew the sacrifice was worth the love for his son. As his Granddaughter, taking responsibility has always been my charge. I step up, show up, and work hard. I will never let his sacrifice be left in vain.
I wish you and your family a wonderful 4th of July. Have fun, be safe, and share some love for your fellow man!
