Your 4th of July Survival Guide

The CC Weekly Weigh In: We’re Free!

We have a lot of freedom here in the wonderful U.S.A. Freedom that people around the world would die for. Freedom that people around the world do die for. But do we appreciate that freedom? Not as much as we should. In fact, being that we've been raised to be independent and fearless females, there are a lot of freedoms we have that we don't recognize often enough.
