One of the greatest things I think I had to memorize in school, was the preamble to the constitution. It begins with "We the people..." and that's what our forefathers intended. That it be, we the people, not we the government, we in Congress, we in the White House, but we the people of the United States, together! We must stick together, work together, fight together, to protect this great country that we love.
Thank God for all these men and women, who came before, that I may celebrate today! Thank God to men and women, like my father, who fought and continue to fight to protect the freedoms we have in this country. I am proud to be an American!
However you celebrate today, may you remember those that came before, whose hard work and perseverance enabled you to have the freedom to celebrate today...the 4th of July, the birth of the USA.
Happy Birthday America!
