“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. -“ Declaration of Independence 1776
On this weekend that we celebrate our Country we also take part in creating traditions that will last a lifetime. I am sure our founding fathers would be proud that we gather for parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and fireworks like they intended. I can’t think of a better way to pursue happiness. It is my hope that you spend the day decked out in your red, white, and blue enjoying your life and those who you are with. I am thankful for those who serve and protect our country. I am grateful to live in a place where we gather to watch fireworks and celebrate all we have and are as a nation.
