Land Of The Free, Home Of The Brave
The 4th of July is a very special American holiday. Barbeques, fireworks, parades, swimming pools and ball games what more could you want. The weather is warm, everyone is in a great mood, summer is just beginning, it really falls at the perfect time. It is important to remember what we are celebrating. This is the day we celebrate America’s independence, the victory in a war that gave us the freedoms that many of us take for granted today.
America is a great nation, but that was not something that happened overnight. This country was built on ideas and ideologies first introduced by our founding fathers during the adoption of the Declaration of Independence On July 4th, 1776. Religious and political freedom, freedom from unfair taxation, equal rights and justice were what these great men risked everything to emphasize. They went to war and gave their lives so that we today could enjoy these noble and righteous gifts.
Jefferson, Adams, Franklin and many more paved the way so that we could live in the greatest country in the world. Remember their sacrifice and remember what they stood for this Fourth of July. Enjoy the fireworks, take a swim in the pool and don’t forget the hot dogs and potato salad but always remember what its all about.
Often we forget and are swept up in the commercialism of this nation’s holidays. That is not your fault, really its just good old-fashioned capitalism. But this Fourth when that last mortar explodes in the night’s sky in a cascade of multi-colored embers and sparks remember that we are Americans and remember what that means and what we stand for. Happy Fourth of July!
