This weekend Americans will join together (hopefully at a safe distance) to celebrate the birth of the United States of America. From backyard BBQ’s to watching fireworks light up the night sky, we’ll unite as a nation to commemorate our Independence.
This year, let us remember that throughout history during uncertain times, we have been able to come together and unite for justice, peace, equality, wellness and love for all. This time is no different. This Independence Day, let all Americans not forget that what unites us are our differences and it’s our differences that make us stronger. They make us a nation, they make us the U.S.A.
One of the most well known excerpts from the Declaration of Independence reminds us of the groundwork for our civic responsibility and sets the foundation for citizenship that Americans must uphold.
“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.”Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson
We as citizens, should live by these words and never forget how they brought us together and will continue to do so as a nation.
This day and every day forward we stand united!
From our Military Shoppers News family to you and yours, we wish you a Happy and Safe 4th of July!
