As our great country celebrates its independence, freedom and amidst the spectacular color and lights, as you gather with family and friends enjoying good food and laughter, we wish you a quiet moment to join us in reflecting on the wisdom and courage of the men and women who founded our country.
The values the set forth in the Declaration of Independence—life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness—are just as important today as they were in 1776.
Take a moment and thank all of the people that have helped us remain free and independent.
If you or a loved one was or is in the military service, I thank them for their thank sacrifice.
Remember: freedom is never free!
