On US Independence Day, praise Mr. Smith who didn’t go to Washington

July 4 is a big day in our family because it’s a holiday bringing us together to enjoy the outdoors, grill some great food, and pop off fireworks. We do all this, and we say a blessing of thanks for the country we live in. When I think of gratitude, I’m not thinking of gratitude to the government. I think of gratitude to everyday Americans who make this country what it is. On this July 4, I’m thinking of a non-celebrity hero who took it upon himself to help others, and it had nothing to do with a government mandate
