Celebrating the Birth of a Nation (July 4, 1776)
Today, we celebrate the 236th anniversary of the Independence of the United States of America, the birth of a sovereign Nation and the courageous men who were willing to support and defend its freedom and liberty. Each citizen of the United States can learn lessons from our Founding Fathers and their vision of a country that would become a beacon for liberty around the World. Our Nation has faced many external and internal challenges to its freedom and liberty throughout its 236 year history. But, as a Nation, and as a people, we have overcome the tyranny of our foes and have remained strong. The foundation that was laid in 1776 is the bedrock of solid ground that will never falter, crack or be replaced. We celebrate this today, and everyday. Have a safe and happy Independence Day!
