Fourth Of July
Today, our flag carries fifty stars, a huge growth from the small union that began so many years ago- even many years before July 4, 1776. Please take a moment to remember our ancestors who came here in the name of freedom and liberty; may neither ever be taken from us.
Remember also, please, that it's not just a holiday.
And to quote:
"Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here in this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by the people, with no powers of its own except those voluntarily granted to it by the people.
We sometimes forget that great truth, and we never should.
Happy Fourth of July."
--Ronald Reagan, President of the United States (1981)
