Regarding Independence Day, Founding Father John Adams wrote to his wife, Abigail, on July 4, 1776:
It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations, from one end of the country to the other, from this time forward forever more.
Happy 4th of July Weekend, everyone!!!
Let us always remember every Patriot who fought for our freedom. This weekend, remember our troops and each brave veteran, without whom there would be nothing for us to celebrate on this national holiday.
May their sacrifices not be in vain.
Pray for our country.
May God bless the USA.
