NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING - OUR SCHOOLS NOW.pdf
On this Independence Day I am reminded of the precious liberties that we take so for granted. There is so much divisiveness in political discourse today and in society in general that “One Nation Under God” seems like a distant memory at times.
I hope this Independence day we can all remember that no matter how imperfect, we are blessed to live in this great country and have freedom that is unimaginable in most of the world. May we each add rather than take away from being “One Nation” and remember we can stand strong on principle without being divisive.
I wish you all a happy and safe Independence Day. God bless the United States of America and the Great State of Utah!
