Today, our country is celebrating the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
Even with all of the ups and downs we’ve experienced as a country, let’s remember that we enjoy tremendous freedoms. July 4th is our opportunity to appreciate the USA, the freedom for which it stands, and the courage of our forefathers to fight for independence.
