Today, we celebrate our country’s birth as the result of the Declaration of Independence being ratified. We have come far as a nation, since July 4th 1776, but it is important to remember that we can always improve and that we need to come together in order to stand up for our freedoms. The excerpts below from the Declaration of Independence may have been written years ago, but are important to remember in today's political climate.
These passages highlight our rights as a country. As we celebrate with family, friends and loved ones, we must be mindful of what July 4th stands for. Take time today to honor our servicemen and women who give the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. Their selflessness, bravery and courage deserve our recognition and appreciation every single day.
Wishing everyone a joyful and safe holiday!
