Obviously Independence Day, the Fourth of July, is the day the United States commemorates its Declaration of Independence. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject and subordinate to the monarch of Britain and were now united, free and independent states.

This day historically has been marked by various activities. Among them parades, celebrations, baseball games, reunions, social gatherings, concerts and firework displays. Much has transpired over the last few years and those events and the occurrences happening now continue to effect and challenge our daily lives. We continue to face trying and abnormal times, times that continue to challenge the very fabric of America and The Republic for which it stands.

We should not forget this fact, that this day marked the beginning of a long and bloody conflict to gain the Independence that our founding Fathers felt was so very important. It is what became the American Way of Life and what was so eloquently stated in The Constitution.

The fact that not everyone agrees with what everyone else says is what makes America great. The fact that we are free to disagree, the fact that we are free to voice our opinion and the fact that we are free to live our lives as we see fit. As long as, we do so with honor and respect of all others and within the boundaries of the law. It is important to remain vigilant that the freedoms we so cherish and that so many gave their lives for over 200 years ago are not eroded, diluted or eliminated by those that purport to know what’s best for America.

So as you participate in whatever you have planned for this day, take a moment to be thankful for what you have and the fact that you live in The United States of America.

God Bless America!!
