Happy Birthday America

I hope you are having a great holiday weekend celebrating our country's independence and freedom.

While nowadays this holiday is often seen as one where the mail is not delivered, much alcohol is drunk, tasty treats are eaten, and spectacular fire works are seen, it is also an important time for us to remember our nation's history while enjoying the celebrations we are experiencing, and recognize and remember the birth of our country.

Our colors of red, white and blue are meaningful and symbolic, and our waving American flag is a reminder of our nation's strength and power. It was on this day, July 4, back in 1776 that our nation was declared independent from the kingdom of Great Britain.

So, as many of us attend barbecues, beaches, parties with friends and families and playgrounds with the kids, let our celebrations be a reminder of how much has been fought for us and sacrificed to give us the opportunities and possibilities we have available today.

Let's be incredibly thankful and appreciative to all the men and women who have sacrificed much to provide us the freedom we have today is good ole U.S.A.

Happy Birthday America.

Happy Birthday to you
