Independence Day

We want to wish everyone a very happy and restful Fourth of July holiday.

It’s a special day and is one of supreme significance. We are now 241 years into this experiment we call the United States of America. As with all works in progress, there are triumphs and tragedies, accomplishments and challenges. But the driving force behind the grand experiment is still there. We are a people who believe in the inherent rights of people to live as they wish and to choose their destiny as they see fit.

Let us not lose sight of the responsibility that freedom entails. It is not license to whatever you want but liberty to choose to do as you ought.

But on this day, let us celebrate our freedom, just as our nation’s founders envisioned that we do. For truly there are not many concepts as beautiful, as all encompassing as that of freedom.  

Celebrate it today; think about it often; work for its protection and preservation always. 

Happy Fourth of July and God Bless America.
