As we celebrate the anniversary of our countryís independence next month, we can look in our hearts and discover anew the gift of freedom in our everyday lives. We are free to drive where we please, free to smile and wave at our neighbors, free to go out to lunch and eat whenever and whatever we like. We live in a land of abundant choices.
May we let the spirit of our country dwell within our hearts as we celebrate the Fourth of July. May we always honor those individuals who have given their lives to preserve the freedom we enjoy, and may we never take for granted this profound gift.
Freedom has shaped our society. We are free to learn, to create, to speak, to worship, to work and succeed. We have the freedom to choose our own lifestyle, including where we live, who our friends are and how we spend our time. When our country was quite young, we were offered still another life choice: a new option for taking care of our bodies through the natural approach of chiropractic. Appropriately, this new method of health care was developed in 1895 in Iowa, Americaís heartland. At first, this new approach to health care met with resistance. Many chiropractors went to jail for practicing medicine without a license. However, in keeping with the democratic principles of the United States of America, chiropractic later became its own licensed profession in all 50 states. Today, chiropractic continues to serve millions of Americans through its system of natural healing. The merits of chiropractic have evolved in many ways over the years. In the 1970ís chiropractic was added to the Medicare system. Added to the military program, chiropractic has also become a benefit covered by many insurance plans.
In the past century, chiropractic has expanded tremendously and has helped millions of Americans as a freely-accessible health system developed in a free country. With 50,000 chiropractors in the United States and a total of 75,000 worldwide, chiropractic care is growing in influence and accessibility. Why does America have such a large share of this number? The main reason is because the chiropractic concept and practice began in America. Increasingly, more countries are asking chiropractors to come to their area to make chiropractic more available to their people.
Easy access to health care of our own choice is a blessing we live with every day. Most Americans live within a short distance of health care, whether it is medical care or the natural healing care of chiropractic. God bless America for this freedom!
The Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln
16th President of the United States
You are only what you are when no one is looking. Character is like a tree, and reputation is like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing. I have simply tried to do what seemed best each day, as each day came. To sit in silence, when they should protest, makes cowards of men. It often requires more courage to dare to do right than to fear to do wrong. Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves. And under a just God, cannot long retain it. It is more important to know that we are on Godís side. A good laugh is good for the mental and physical digestion. You cannot help someone permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves. Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a manís character, give him power. Let minor differences and personal preferences, if there be such, go to the winds.
