Independence Day 2020
July 4, 2020 is Independence Day. 244 years ago, 56 patriots came forward to sign the Declaration of Independence. They pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. They were brave and stood firm through all the bloodshed of the coming years of the Revolutionary War. Their courage created a nation built on a universal claim to human dignity, on the proposition that every man, woman, and child had a right to a future of freedom and liberty.
For just a moment, let us read these words again: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” This is reflected by the millions who came to America in search of the dream of freedom and then passed it on to their children and grandchildren.
From the Albers family to yours, Happy Fourth of July and God Bless America!
