Happy Independence Day!

“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

On July 4, 1776, people of all walks of life joined together and declared their independence as a free nation.  A country was born, and a people were united in demanding for their rightful freedom as Americans.  That legacy lives on today, and it is my hope that we all take a few moments to reflect on the sacrifices that have been made on this country’s behalf and of those servicemen and women stationed overseas who continue to fight for our way of life.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
