7/4/2021 - Independence Day

On this day, in 1776, the Continental Congress declared the thirteen colonies were no longer subject to the Monarch of Britain. It declared we were united, free, and independent. We were no longer beholding to anyone. We were free.

Freedom is nothing to take for granted. None of us living in the United States has been enslaved to a person or another country. It's a freedom we all can appreciate, it's a freedom we can love. All of us. You may not appreciate that freedom, some don't, but it's freedom nonetheless. 

This day has been relegated to fireworks and parades but let's take a moment and think of all this country has been through, is going through, and will go through. Take a moment and relish the great country we were born in. 

May God bless America!
