One of the things that make America so great is that our citizens come from all varieties of life. With different races, religions and beliefs, we have a unique opportunity to live among one another with peace and respect. Oftentimes we even borrow customs of another culture to make our own lives more enjoyable.
Today, we are benefitting from the actions that were taken nearly 236 years ago. Although America is a much different place than it was then, the spirit of independence shown then lives on today as we make a future for ourselves and contribute to economic growth around us.
No matter how you mark Independence Day this year, I hope that you and your family will do so with the intentions of our founders in mind. More importantly, I hope that their vision will inspire you to be more active in your community. Have a safe and memorable celebration!
