On this day, I always reflect on the freedoms that we have living in the United States of America. Working at Franciscan Media, one I think about especially often is freedom of religion.
Today, I pray in thanksgiving for my freedom of religion, and I pray that others who are persecuted for their beliefs may have the strength to hold tight to them.
As we celebrate with family and friends today, may we remember how blessed we are to live here. God bless the USA.
