July 4th

Today we celebrate our independence 

We come together and eat

We shoot off fireworks

And wear our nations colors

This day many years ago

We separated from religious bondage

We became free to choose our beliefs

This makes for a freedom most countries don’t have

This freedom was bought by our soldiers and minute men

I believe that we should never force our beliefs on anyone

My God allows me to choose

He wants my heart to turn to Him without force

This is a freedom of choice given by God

Thank You Father for Love and freedom

I pray that others allow your people to choose

I will try to reflect Your Love by respecting the freedom of my neighbor
