Year after year, one scorching summer after another, the Fourth of July rolls around and the anticipation of the day’s festivities fill the neighborhood streets with excitement. It is, after all, the peak of the summer season. The once vividly colored beach towel is beginning to fade from long days left in the sun and you have mastered the art of grilling the perfect steak after several weekend barbecues of practice!
Undoubtedly, it is the most enjoyable summer celebration! Friends and family come together to enjoy food made with love, share in laughter and most importantly to create memories that will be shared for years to come; hopefully, not at your expense!
However, not every American has the luxury of spending the holiday poolside or lighting up the night sky with a spectacular firework display. How easy it is to take for granted the brave men and women who choose to put their life on the line for our many freedoms, great and small. This holiday has been built upon tremendous sacrifice since 1776 when American independence was won and continues to be fought for every day. Always remember the strength and courage of our brothers and sisters who protect our country everyday so that we can enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
So, this Fourth of July as you celebrate this great land with friends and family, remember to take a moment and salute our country’s brave stars.
Have a wonderful and safe holiday!
