Celebrating Independence Day
It will be a day of outdoor fun, barbecues and fireworks displays. A day when proud Americans stand even taller and hold their heads even higher. We are bold, determined individuals at all times, and on the 4th of July we celebrate our freedoms and way of life.
On Independence Day, people from across this great nation will come together to hang out, share funny stories and create new memories. And we’ll take a moment to remember the patriots who made this day possible.
History Of Independence Day
On July 4th, 1776 the men who would later be known as our Founding Fathers approved the most important document in American history. The Declaration of Independence proclaimed that the United States was a free nation. It said the 13 colonies that made up the country at the time were no longer subjected to the tyranny of England’s King George III.
The Declaration of Independence affirmed that all men are created equal and endowed with unalienable rights including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. From the moment these inspiring words were read in public, they were met with jubilant approval. They encapsulated everything Americans stand for, then and now. Freedom, equality and justice.
The Declaration was signed by 56 members of the Congressional Congress, most notably by John Hancock who made sure his name stood out. Scholars believe he did this to ensure King George III would notice his name immediately. That simple gesture embodies the American spirit. We do not meekly request our freedoms, we courageously demand them.
Celebrate Your Independence
Ever since that unforgettable day in 1776, July 4th has been a time to commemorate our freedoms and all the sacrifices made to take those freedoms. This Monday, July 4, 2011, as we enjoy a day filled with family and friends, we can all take a moment to remember.
We will reflect on the American heroes who founded this country, and defended its borders. Honor the brave men and women who fought and died so we could enjoy a better life. And relish the American spirit we inherited from them. We stand tall, we stand strong and we stand up for each other.
