Independence Is Hard Work

I greatly appreciate every man and woman who signs up to defend America.  Thank you.

I greatly appreciate every man and woman who gets up, goes to work, pays their taxes, and participates in the work force of America.  Thank you.

I greatly appreciate every man and woman who goes about their day speaking their opinions and sharing their thoughts without physical assault on those who do not agree.  Thank you.

I greatly appreciate every man and woman who helps someone who is: less fortunate, less able, or taken a wrong path and trying to find their way in America.   Thank you.

I greatly appreciate every man and woman who believe they can find opportunity in America and come here full of hope and enterprise and willingness to be a part of America.  Thank you.

I greatly appreciate every man and woman who does everything they can to be part of building America up for now, and the future, refusing to let America be torn down on their watch.

I greatly appreciate every man and woman, regardless of their circumstances, who does their best to be part of America.

I greatly appreciate every American who believes America does not owe them.  But who believes we all have a responsibility to be part of a working, helping, learning America.   We can never rest on the great actions of those before us.   They cannot carry us forever.

I greatly appreciate Americans who realize independence is hard work and a responsibility of us all.

I greatly appreciate America.
