Happy 4th of July! I hope you’ll be spending the day with family, maybe enjoying a fireworks display this evening. Hamburgers, hot dogs and fireworks are all very nice, but let’s not forget what we are celebrating. It was 241 years ago today that the United States was born by the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, declaring the Thirteen Colonies were a new nation and no longer a part of the British Empire. And didn’t that set off a firestorm! War was declared, and the United States fought long and hard for its independence.
So on this important day in our nation’s history, I hope you enjoy your time with family and friends.
What are your plans for this holiday?
