Happy Fourth of July to all of us that are proud to be Americans! God has truly blessed us beyond what we deserve. After seeing the tremendous performances by the talented participants at the National Independence Day celebration in Washington, D.C., we can truly acknowledge that we are a Christian nation. We have permitted patriotism to go out of style. Independence Day is really “Dependence” day on God, more than ever. It is a day to reaffirm God’s vision for America, the dream he gave to our founding fathers. God says to us, “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray I will hear from heaven.” The Fourth of July isn’t only a day of picnics, firecrackers and parades. It is a day of prayer for our nation, our leaders and asking God’s blessing on our nation. I just read, “The greatest expression of patriotism is prayer.” May we continue to be a nation under God. God bless America. ELLY DERR, Auburn
