“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, we proudly celebrate the birth of our great nation. Americans everywhere will be united in spirit as we commemorate the ideals of liberty and justice our country was founded on. My hope is that among our festivities this Independence Day, we all take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices the brave men and women of this nation have made and continue to make in order to ensure a life of freedom for their fellow Americans, and a hope for freedom for the world.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
