Every year on the fourth of July, we Americans celebrate our Independence Day. Looking back 244 years ago, the 13 colonies claimed their independence from Great Britain on July 4, 1776. This historic event eventually led to the formation of the United States.
Our world looks so different now, with this pandemic going on and the different challenges we face in our countries and communities.
But the bottom line stays the same, our founding fathers wanted us to live our lives fully, free from any oppressive force. So we carry on and honor their vision and sacrifice.
Happy 4th everyone! May we all enjoy and celebrate our freedom, not just with fireworks and parties and barbecues, but more than anything with lives lived in honor, respect and love for our country and humankind.
