Regarding the fourth of July this week I have a slightly heavy heart. I feel sad that at this moment I feel that we have so little to celebrate about America. I feel saddened that our country has so much hate and negativity swirling around these days. My heart aches for the pain of so many who are facing difficulties and oppression in this country. I know America has never been perfect, and I do love our country but I find myself disappointed in the choices we have made in our leadership and the perceived shift in what we stand for. That being said, I still believe in the good.
