Happy Fourth of July

“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty.” -John F. Kennedy

We sincerely thank all the past, present and future defenders of our freedom- be you military, politician, philanthropist or patriot.

Lani is the COO and News Director at The American Genius, has co-authored a book, co-founded BASHH, Austin Digital Jobs, Remote Digital Jobs, and is a seasoned business writer and editorialist with a penchant for the irreverent.

    Lani – This is my favorite “Independence Day” post – ever! The message bears repeating time and again. While we celebrate our freedom as Americans – it’s important to remember the price it has cost us.

    If you know somebody serving on active duty it would be a great time to give them a call or write them a note.
