On Independence Day, I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July! I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday with friends and family.
It’s America’s 242nd Birthday. Hard to believe that way back in 1776, the American Revolution resulted in the Declaration of Independence on July 4. Our separation from Great Britain actually occurred on July 2. However, it’s honored on this day, commemorating what Thomas Jefferson authored as part of the Committee of Five, which included John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert Livingston. Two future Presidents with Adams and Jefferson following George Washington.
We celebrate our freedom as a country. Whatever you do, stay safe. Who doesn’t love looking at fireworks 💥🎇🎆? There’s nothing like it. Even though they’re frequently set off before and after the special holiday. Fireworks are also used out here to honor Memorial Day and New Year’s.
Enjoy your day.
