Today is the 4th of July, America’s Independence Day.
On this day many of us will be at the beach, perfecting our barbecue recipes and watching the fireworks.
We have a lot to be grateful for.
While millions around the world struggle for the most basic of human rights, Americans wake up every day with the knowledge that they have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Today we honor the countless members of our armed forces, who over the past 240 years, have given everything, including their lives, for the freedoms that we take for granted.
Happy 4th of July, America.
