There are so many ways to express one’s love for country. What to do on July 4th to show you love the USA is a deeply personal matter. For many folks Independence Day means family barbecues, baseball and fireworks. Others love to attend an old fashioned small town parade.

No matter how one chooses to mark the occasion, each person, in his or her own way, recognizes the incredible process that came to fruition on July 4, 1776 at Independence Hall in Philadelphia. On that day the Second Continental Congress approved the final wording of the Declaration of Independence, an act which set in motion the separation of the original 13 colonies from Great Britain.  Indeed, this event ushered in the birth of a new nation and a modern democratic republic.

It took America nearly 200 years to realize the aspirations of the founding fathers, who included in the second section of the document these words:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

The impact of the American Revolution is still with us, inspiring long suffering peoples as they struggle to throw off the yolk of tyranny.

It is our hope that citizens the world over, no matter which country they owe allegiance, can come together in appreciation of the seminal events that took place during an unseasonably mild day in the summer of 1776.
Please have a joyous, safe, and meaningful Independence Day.
