Being as I lost my independence on Independence Day, I would normally devote today’s blog to my lovely wife of 33 years and the time we have spent together. Alas, something else came up, and the 4th of July seems a singularly appropriate time to post this. This blog is also a rarity in that I’m engaging in “reblogging” someone else’s material—something I’m loathe to do as I pride myself on staying original in content. Nevertheless, I find this man’s story compelling and his mission in life important. But, be forewarned that the language may be a bit rough.
