Does July 4th mean anything anymore?
If you took a poll among most College Students in todays generation they couldn't tell you what July 4th stands for or what the year 1776 meant to a lot of people. Independence Day is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States, on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject (and subordinate) to the monarch of Britain, King George III, and were now united, free, and independent states. Did you also know that Congress had voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2, but it was not declared until July 4. It is a day to celebrate us beings Americans. We have the Freedom to live our lives the way we want. But with everything going on the last year and half...Pandemic and Election fraud it just seems like we are losing our Independence. As long as we have our Declaration of Independence NO ONE can take away our freedom. Countries have threatened us and we also are dealing with jobs and family and just tryin to survive this life to be able to celebrate this July 4th. So no matter where you are on this Independence Day, make sure you take time to stop and celebrate it because one day we may have to stand up and fight again for our freedom and not just our troops but EVERY AMERICAN in this GREAT COUNTRY OF OURS.
Take care of your yourself and each other.
HAPPY JULY 4TH!!!
