Cathy and I want to wish you an absolutely terrific Fourth. We hope that
you’re going to go out and enjoy this beautiful state in some way or
another. Please visit one of our State Parks and enjoy time with your
What an incredible holiday this is – our nation’s birthday. The day that
so many gave so much so that we could have what we have right here in
this incredible country – our freedom.
This year has been pretty tough, that’s all there is to it. We were dealt
a pandemic like none other. We have absolutely struggled through this and
we’ve lost too many West Virginians that we should all remember in our
thoughts and prayers.
But West Virginians have done great and West Virginia Strong prevails! We
are the home of the brave. You have done so good. I could never possibly
be more proud of you than I am now. I ask you just one thing – please
pause wherever you are to give thanks and give appreciation and notice to
those that gave the ultimate to ensure your freedoms in this country.
Enjoy an incredible celebration this 4th of July but please stay
social-distanced and wear a mask. But over and over again, Cathy and I
wish you a Happy 4th of July!
