Celebrating Independence Day

“Freedom lies in being bold.”  –Robert Frost

In 1776, a number of bold men, representing families and friends, gathered as part of the Second Continental Congress in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. There, on July 4, they signed the Declaration of Independence, giving birth to these United States.

From then until now, many have given their lives to protect the freedoms we hold dear. And today, we pause for a moment to honor them. Were it not for their boldness and bravery, we could not enjoy this leisurely day to gather with friends to celebrate the birth of our country.

May you and yours have a safe and happy Independence Day.
