Happy Independence Day!

On July 4th, 1776 a group of courageous men signed our Declaration of Independence from Great Britain and in so doing, founded the greatest nation on earth!

Of the momentous act that was about to occur, John Adams wrote to his wife, Abigail:

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.

He may have been two days off, but the courageous act of those men in 1776 set in motion the founding of the greatest nation on earth.

I hope you enjoy celebrating today with family and friends!

Happy Independence Day!
