Happy 4th of July!

On July 4, 1776, fifty-six leaders of the Continental Congress signed the Declaration of Independence. With this signing, our Founding Fathers declared themselves, along with the 2.5 million people living in the thirteen colonies, members of a new, independent nation: The United States of America.

This year’s Independence Day — July 4, 2019 — marks the 243rd anniversary of our country’s founding and the birth of the American dream.

Every year, patriotic folks across the nation celebrate our freedom and this momentous occasion with firework displays, BBQ parties, parades, outdoor games and lots (and lots!) of American-made beer, as scores of American flags can be seen soaring across the nation.

In fact, The National Retail Federation (NRF) reports that “Eighty-six percent of Americans plan to celebrate Independence Day this year, spending a total $6.7 billion on food items, according to NRF’s annual survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics. Cookouts, barbecues and picnics continue to be the most popular activity (61%), followed by fireworks and community celebrations (40%).”

Some of the most popular menu items include hamburgers, ribs, potato salad, and hot dogs.

Meanwhile, U.S. Census Bureau data released by the Department of Commerce estimates that in 2012, $368.6 million worth of fireworks were purchased from retailers across the country.

Check out this spectacular display of fireworks in New York City that took place a few years ago (pretty impressive, huh?):

Let’s celebrate our freedom!

The 4th of July is a day for beer, brats and bright fireworks.

It’s a time for our families to come together to barbecue, and watch the beautiful lights in the sky, and maybe even get an extra day or two off of work.

But that’s not what it’s really about is it?

On July 4, 1776, the 13 original colonies of the United States of America all joined together to declare their independence from England. It’s when our country began. It’s when we decided that we wanted to do things differently — we wanted to be a land where people were free to live their lives, that no one person could make all of the laws the govern the way everyone is to live.

We put a structure in place that allowed the citizens of America live their lives with a voice to change things. To stand up and be heard.

There are a lot of problems in the country right now. Everyone is fighting; no one can seem to agree on anything. But what we must remember is that we are lucky to have the freedom to argue. We are lucky to have the voices we have. We are lucky to live in a country that not only allows but encourages us to use our voices to conduct change.

That is what the Fourth of July is all about. It is about the entire country coming together to celebrate our right to change: To celebrate our voices. To celebrate our ideas. To celebrate our choices. To celebrate our freedom. To celebrate America.

Happy 4th of July everyone!
