Freedom Fight

This time of year you see everyone lounging in a hammock chair and watching the events of the July 4th holiday. How lucky we are to live in a country where we have the opportunity to take our freedom for granted! It really is something that we haven't had to think a lot about, they are just there. How sad for people around the world who don't share even a small percentage of the freedoms we do. We can call up a hotel on our cell phone and make a reservation and for most people in this country there isn't much of a hardship in paying for our stay. In Cuba, the government has just given their citizens the right to carry cell phones and to stay in hotels. Sadly, they are paid around $18 per year to live and the going rates at hotels or even for cell phones start at 5 times that amount. God Bless the USA!!
