The July 4th weekend is a celebration of our nation’s independence and our nation’s survival.
July 4th 145 years ago saw the retreat of the Confederate Army from Gettysburg in defeat, perhaps saving the nation from a permanent split.
And it led t o the ideal we strove for, as President Lincoln enunciated in his Gettysburg Address and that led to the end of slavery here.
As we celebrated the anniversary of an event in world history on Friday that deserves to be remembered, we must seek to honor the event every day.
For it was on that day that a group of people formally declared the value of man.
On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress formally declared our independence from Britain and our democracy was born and we became the world’s beacon for freedom.
Every day, thousands leave their homeland to come to the “land of the free and the home of the brave” so they can live the dream of everyone – to be free.
Our Independence Day celebration is an annual holiday commemorating the formal adoption of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia. Although the signing of the Declaration was not completed until August, the Fourth of July holiday has been accepted as the official anniversary of United States independence and is celebrated in all states and territories of the U.S.
