Independence Day celebrations are an opportunity for America to exhibit it's pride and respect for our fore fathers. As we head towards a critical election season, this is the time to show your patriotism.
Our founding fathers gave so much to assure our independence from England. All the signers of the Declaration of Independence knew that upon signing the declaration that day in Philadelphia, they were putting their lives, their wealth and their family at risk to the British. The signers in fact were committing treason against the oppressive regime' of the British. All for the birth of a great nation.
Remember, our founders efforts to create our country. The struggles of Adams, Franklin, and Jefferson to create the document to separate us from England. The back and forth contentious debates between the many delegates from the south and the north. All working to create America.
Americans honor our troops for sustaining our freedoms and security. Yet, do we remember all of the soldiers who secured our independence? We are quick to remember our veterans and active service men and women in modern day war. But, shall we reach back in time to remember our colonial troops of the American Revolution? Keep close to your heart the thousands of American colonials and the leadership of George Washington who faced down the British all the way to victory at Yorktown.
Yes, America has an incredible, storied history. A history to be proud of. A history to share so generations will know our passion for this country. I cite that America's passion for history emboldens our pride. Each of us shows our passion in many ways. Whether it's participating in your local Independence Day parade, celebrating with friends and family with festive fireworks or talking with a youngster about our founders.
Americans enjoy your celebrations this Independence Day! Forever let our citizens have a passion for our history. May we all profoundly exude our love for our founders as we look to this year's election.
