Today is a day of remembering all those who fought and died to bring about our freedom in this country. I
am taking this opportunity to repeat one of my first blogs written in June 2018. There is nothing more
that can be said but to keep on fighting for our freedom and loving this wonderful country of ours.
A DAY TO REMEMBER
On July 4th, 1776, the 13 colonies claimed their independence from England.
It was three days earlier that Richard Henry Lee of Virginia, presented a Resolution , later adopted in the late afternoon of July 4th.
“Resolved: That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be totally dissolved.”
The original copy of the Declaration is housed in the National Archives in Washington, D C.
We all know that July 4 is the designated national holiday for Americans, to remember the day the United states claimed to be a free nation.
As Americans, we enjoy the freedom and independence given us by our ancestors, and should take this opportunity to thank the men and women who built this country, fought for this country and still serve to keep us free.
