"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more," stated our forefather and my ancestor John Adams.

Today is a day to celebrate our freedom from all other states. We are able to be who we are with such freedoms as religion, political view, education, ability to own land, and endless opportunities for prosperity.
Today we should be thankful for the men and women of the military branches, who have pledged to stand for our country and the individuals living in it! We are very fortunate to have these brave people representing us!
We should be thankful for our forefathers and late military figures for their effort and lives lost for our great land!
We should be thankful to our Father above for blessing us with this place as our birthplace and/or place of residence! We should show our gratitude and appreciation byresponsibly celebrating this holiday!
