Time to buy the firecrackers, get the barbeque heated up, and have a great family gathering. It is the 4th of July!

But…is that all the 4th of July really means? Is it just and extended weekend? 

Many years ago in 1776, our nation broke away from depending on other countries, and formed our own. We decided to walk the path of life alone.

Our great nation has grown through the years. We have prospered, and have a good lifestyle.  

The U.S.A. has many freedoms. We have many choices. However, we sometimes use those freedoms, to cause turmoil. We may be the most satisfied nation, but we also may be the most empty. 

We expect the luxuries. We expect to be able to choose our own paths. We have become a self centered nation that is having storms within its borders.

Let’s change our thinking now to the men and women who have fought for us to get those freedoms and luxuries. We may well have been taken over by the enemy in past wars if it weren’t for our veterans who put themselves in harm’s way to assure us of those freedoms.

That is what the 4th of July means to me. It is celebrating our freedoms and thank those who have gotten it for us. 

We need to give back to these heroes to thank them for their service. That is where Bike 22 comes in. There is a national event that started today. Steve Durgin, the CEO of Victory for Veterans of riding his bike across the great nation of ours to bring awareness of our veterans and the sacrifices they have made. He is heading up the West coast, and then zig zagging his way across this country to end up in Washington D. C. 

Steve will be coming through over 80 cities. He will be greeted by thousands of people. Why don’t you join him on his quest to help those veterans who may be suffering from PTSD, TBI, depression, homelessness, war wounds, etc. Show him you care. Show him you want to help out by riding with him or being at one of the events to show support. You can even donate right now on this site to help out.
