THE VOICE July | August 2019 2
president’s message All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope, and freedom. Each of these words could not be attained without the realization of the last. In 1776 we lit the ﬁre of freedom and fought for our own country. Our own inner struggle began 150 years ago, where brother fought brother and we paid a heavy price. We fought each other in order to make sure that those inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness were truly endowed to all men. The birthright of freedom that has been bestowed on us by our creator is fundamental and true. It is so simple a fact and so just a cause that we are a threat to all tyranny and to all dictators that seek to stiﬂe the voice of freedom. No matter what cost, no matter what price, no matter how big or how ﬁerce the ﬁght the voice will always ﬁght to be heard. To date we continue this ﬁght around the world, because there is discrimination in this world, slavery, slaughter, and starvation. Those evils and the terrorists that use them, seek to bring them to our shores. That battle they will not win.
Across the globe the world still turns its tired yet hopeful eyes toward our horizon. In the distance that light still burns bright beckoning those yearning to be free, the mantle of freedom still rests here and we still pay a heavy price. On Independence Day, the fourth of July, we celebrate the birth of the greatest nation in the world. We have parades, we cook out, we have ﬁrework displays and we enjoy the greatest of patriotic days. We must remember how God has blessed America. In our Independence Day celebration, we should thank God for all His Blessings that He provided so abundantly for us. As we get together this holiday let us remember those who have fought to preserve our right to freedom and remember the scariﬁes they have made on our behalf. Sincerely, Kirk Ballard, President MSI Chamber of Commerce
chairman’s message Summertime is here and through the business activity does not cease, your Chamber hopes that each one of you is able to ﬁnd some vacation opportunities to get away from work and spend time with family and friends. It truly beneﬁts you and your place of business to come back into it with a refreshed perspective. It is so evident to me that the Board of Directors for this organization is devoted to your success and their leadership will continue to guide us as we move the Chamber forward. They, as well as, I seek your input and feedback on issues that you face in business each and every day. We need every member connected to opportunities provided through your Chamber so that we can help you accomplish the goals you have set for yourself, your organization, and, for our community as a whole. It you aren’t sure where to start or how you can get involved, let us know and we’ll as-
sist in identifying ways. Working together achieves so much more for everyone. The growth of our region has brought many opportunities here and by working together we can make good, solid decisions that can steer the growth in a positive sustainable direction. Get involved in your Chamber! It’s an honor to be a partner in this progressive place. Sincerely, Jim Marshall, Chairman MSI Chamber of Commerce
