Happy Independence Day!

Freedom is something we fight for continually. How incredibly blessed we are to get with those we love the most and appreciate the miracle that our democracy is. The Fourth of July commemorates the adoption of our Declaration of Independence which was signed and ratified on July 4, 1776. It established the original thirteen American colonies as a new nation and declared they were no longer part of the British Empire. It is considered as the National Day of the United States and became a fixed federal holiday in 1870. 

Today we celebrate The 4th with fireworks, parades, cookouts, and ceremonies, and we honor the men and women who have protected our freedoms so that our independence may endure. As we work through our challenges as a nation, we recognize what a miracle our country is. We acknowledge the valuable citizens and leaders who keep on fighting to ensure freedom to all people. May the 4th of July be a safe, reflective and fun time for you and your families!

God bless you and God bless the United States of America!
