It is alright to be sad, even to cry. We are all hearing and seeing commercials for anti-depressants and how to look better to feel better; nothing wrong with that. There is something wrong with denying ourselves the right to cry and the authentic need to be sad. There is death, sickness, tragedies of every kind in life. We need to be sad and even to cry to then be able to get over those difficulties.
When I think of the men and women who have died for our country on this 4th of July, I shed a tear in their memory. God bless them and those who have mourned for them. God bless you and help you to face the tragedies of life with a tear and the strength to stand up and return to life.
