Land of the Free ….

Amidst fireworks, barbeque, parades and flags, Americans near and far will be celebrating the Fourth of July. The Independence Day holiday is actually commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States on July 4, 1776. On that date, the Continental Congress declared that Britain no longer maintained rule over the thirteen original American colonies. Those colonies, in essence, became free, and said they were no longer dependent on Britain.


This epoch moment in history did not come without sacrifice, hard work and commitment to the cause of liberty. So, while enjoying an All-American hot dog, having fun at a county fair, watching the fireworks light up the nighttime sky, or enjoying a baseball game, remember those who valiantly stood tall for independence, and for the seeds of a burgeoning nation – our nation – the United States of America. Land of the free and home of the brave.


Happy Independence Day!
