“The United States is the only country with a known birthday. All the rest began, they know not when, and grew into power, they know not how. If there had been no Independence Day, England and America combined would not be so great as each actually is. There is no "Republican," no "Democrat," on the Fourth of July — all are Americans. All feel that their country is greater than party”. ~James G. Blaine
Today, Americans everywhere are celebrating the birth of our great nation. It is my hope that everyone will take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices that have been made to make this country a free and proud nation, and to appreciate the work our servicemen and women continue to carry out to ensure those freedoms. I hope everyone has a fun and safe day.
Happy 4th of July!
