The independence of this nation was won by people who rose up against those who would oppress them. It was on their blood and sweat that this country was founded. Let us all take a moment this day to give silent thanks to those people and the sacrifices they made for a better future for their families and those who continue to make those sacrifices today. Remember that this great country was not founded on complacency and acceptance but by those willing to stand up and fight for what they believe in. May we all have a happy and safe Independence Day.
