Happy Independence Day!
Today is a day in America in which we celebrate our freedom as a nation. It was on this day in 1776 that the Continental Congress formerly adopted the Declaration of Independence. It was this day that our founding fathers made their intentions to establish a free and independent nation known to the world.
In the intervening years, the focus Independence Day has been more on backyard barbecues and fireworks and yet it is also a day for all Americans to reflect upon the freedoms and individual liberties that they enjoy as citizens of our nation. It is also an opportunity to reflect upon those who sacrfice so that we might be able to enjoy a day of festivities and celebration.
From all of us here at JoeBattlelines, have a safe and happy July 4th – our Independence Day!
