Fourth of July

Rappahannock News - - NEWS -

Abra­ham Lin­coln said, “ Nearly all men can stand ad­ver­sity, but if you want to test a man’s char­ac­ter, give him power.”

As we gather in our com­mu­nity for our cel­e­bra­tion our in­de­pen­dence, let us also cel­e­brate not only our power, but also our ca­pac­ity as a nation to grow in kind­ness and wis­dom.

French nov­el­ist Al­bert Ca­mus chal­lenged us to re­mem­ber that “Free­dom is noth­ing but a chance to be bet­ter.” It is a re­flec­tion of our hu­man­ity that we make mis­takes and have the op­por­tu­nity, and the free­dom, to grow from our mis­takes. Have a won­der­ful Fourth of July.
