Our Sacred Honor

Everyone be safe this holiday, especially with the fireworks. We’ve already had one major fire near us this year (Cajete); that’s more than enough! Watch those campfires, too!

As we celebrate Independence Day this week, it’s a time for reflection and thanksgiving. This year, of course, we have a new president—some say for good, some say for ill.
