Happy Independence Day America!

Happy Independence Day America.
 
Today is the day that the colonies declared their independence from England. Let me be clear, I don’t have anything against England and I think our countries have worked together well since we parted company. What a lot of people don’t know or realize is that simply declaring our independence didn’t give us our freedom, there was a long battle to follow that gave us our freedom and independence. After we gained our independence they wrote a Constitution that laid out the foundation we build on to this day. Being a veteran, and the child of veterans, I know that the freedom didn’t come without a price. It was a price I felt and feel was worth it and is what makes the country the greatest country on Earth. If I didn’t think it was, I would work through my freedom of choice in the voting booth to change things, or leave to whatever country I felt would best serve my needs. Among my freedoms is the right to protest, but a protest is only constructive if I offer a solution, otherwise it is more of complaining. My message is this: you are free because many gave their lives then and now to give you rights, not privileges, be grateful of those who did just that, don’t waste those freedoms on complaining, offer a solution, make changes you desire peacefully in a voting booth. On a personal note, please keep it off Social Media, it changes nothing, absolutely nothing. Celebrate our declaration of independence by taking a moment to think about your freedoms and where we go from here to stay on the track our Founding Fathers set in 1776.
 
This image is one of the Big Canoe Eagles from my session photographing them Monday with my friend Mark Green. It was a great morning, even if our opportunities to photograph the Eagles was limited. Below is a link of our outing if you would like to watch it. I include more images from the trip at the end as well. As always I ask that if you like it, please give it a thumbs up, and if you don’t already do so, please Subscribe to my channel.
