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!
