Celebrating Freedom This Fourth of July
This year as Americans, we need to celebrate our freedom more than ever. There are so many things going on in our nation right now, but we can never forget how this nation got started, how our nation became free. We must remember that we have a lot more freedom than some other countries in the world.
Music is the thing that makes me feel the most free, and we have so much of it. We can listen to almost any type of music we want. But the "Star Spangled Banner" is the musical anthem of our nation.
I remember celebrating freedom when I lived in Texas as a child. We would celebrate with music at Southfork Ranch near Dallas. It was an event called Celebrate Freedom. I have so many great memories of so many years at Celebrate Freedom. Every memory is of me celebrating the freedom of our nation and the freedom of my religion. I didn't get to go this year, but the lineup looked pretty great: Steven Curtis Chapman, Toby Mac, Third Day, Kari Jobe, Colton Dixon and others. I hope they all had fun celebrating the freedom of our nation.
