Happy Independence Day! There is no American holiday like it.
Our forefathers boldly approved the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. John Adams, patriot and second president of the United States, wrote:
“(This) will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”
July 4th is a day to honor the freedoms and independence we enjoy in America. Let’s honor it, cherish it and protect it for all the generations that follow.
