Happy July 4th from Livingston Scottish Rite
Brethren, as we celebrate the Fourth of July this year remember your family, friends and Brothers. Celebrate with a delicious cookout and all the red, white, and blue décor you can handle.
2020 has come with its challenges and issues. I encourage you and yours to put those challenges and issues aside. Take a break from everything that we get in our faces everyday. Remember the greatness of our beloved country and fraternity and strive to continue to revel in their glory. Spend your holiday filled to the brim with American pride. Since actions speak louder than words, use one of this time to reflect as we go forward and what we can do to carry our message forward and really let freedom ring. Whether you're planning on spending your day off relaxing with family or floating in the river with a summer drink in hand, do it with happiness and American pride in your heart.
Celebrations aside, Independence Day is an important time to reflect on our country's unique history with these inspiring sentiments from our Founding Fathers and revolutionary thinkers alike. Highlight why we are so lucky to live in "The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave."
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."
Brethren may peace, love and great health surround you and your families
