Independence Day is a time for friends and family, a time to celebrate all the things that make our country such a special place, and a time to appreciate our freedoms and way of life and the sacrifices of so many to ensure those freedoms that we have now enjoyed for 244 years.
Today, on Independence Day, let’s celebrate the rights and freedoms we are fortunate to enjoy in this sweet land of liberty. Let’s applaud our freedoms and salute our flag.
“Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, and the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed ~ else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.”
… Dwight D. Eisenhower
“One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, One Nation evermore!”
… Oliver Wendell Holmes
“… There is no ‘Republican,’ no ‘Democrat’ on the Fourth of July — we are all Americans.”
… James G. Blaine
Let’s keep the American spirit alive by honoring this special day!
Wishing all a safe and happy July 4th weekend!
Happy 244th Birthday, America!
