Happy Indepenedence Day 2008!

I would like to wish each and every one of you a very happy Independence Day! Today is a day to reflect on everything that makes America great. A day to remember our break from tyranny and the creation of new form of government, one that values individual freedoms, maximizes liberty, is not oppressive in taxation, and allows each individual to pursue their own dreams in freedom. Assuredly we have not reached this point completely as of yet, the ideals that our Founding Fathers envisioned for us, but we, the American people must strive hard to perfect our union, and allow liberty to flourish within our Republic, and take a stronger stance to fight for these ideals.

We should take time today to be with friends and family, to remember all the sacrifices that our ancestors have given so that we may have a chance to chase the American dream. We should recollect on the spirit of freedom that blossomed into the American Revolution, the likes of which the world had never seen before. We should honor and thank our veterans for fighting for our rights and giving the ultimate sacrifice for every one of us, remembering they gave voluntary service in order protect the masses that did not have the privilege of knowing them personally. We should remember that the fireworks are an illustration in that they provide a representation of Francis Scott Key’s work, our National Anthem, that even through the horrors of war, the lights of the explosions gave hope and inspiration that our Flag was still waving, and that we were still free. I wish you all the best today, I give thanks to those that came before me and reaffirm my beliefs in freedom and liberty. God Bless.
