Happy 4th of July, America!

Dear America, our first 240 years have continuously brought us to higher and higher ground, though it certainly has not been easy, and there have been some backward steps. Yet, we continue, rising higher than our past, with God’s help.

I am proud to be an American, but I know there is still much good work to be done. I wish we could all be here when the 300th celebration on the 4th of July takes place.  We can’t.

But we at The Well of Dyersburg pledge to do our best to leave the legacy of God’s unconditional love for all as a foundation of unity and diversity so that our free and brave grandchildren and great-grands who will be here at that 300th celebration will see that star-spangled banner waving and welcoming all in peace.

It will be 2076, an election year.  May God bless America and keep her faithful.
