Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays.
It probably started with the fireworks.
I do enjoy a good light show.
But it’s grown to be a source of both pride and humility.
- Pride because I love my country.
- Humility because of all the sacrifices by people before me to enable me to enjoy the freedoms I take for granted today.
I am awed by the courage of the men and women who created this republic and fought to establish the United States as an independent, sovereign nation.
I am grateful to all the men and women who continue to fight for my country.
Happy Independence Day.
