Remembering Why We Celebrate the Fourth of July

Independence Day is once again nearly upon us, and Arizonans everywhere will brave the triple digit heat to celebrate with friends and family. So as we gather around campsites, barbeques, parks, and fireworks let’s all take the time to remember why we’re celebrating the Fourth of July.

For over 200 years, Independence Day has been the celebration of the day we declared our independence from Great Britain. Since Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence it has been a symbol of freedom known worldwide.

July 4th is a day to celebrate our freedom, specifically the freedom to govern ourselves. Americans have always known that Independence Day is the day we celebrate our freedoms that the Founders fought and died for. As a country dealing with everything from unemployment to political distress, we all need to pull together and unite to remember the extreme sacrifices that have been made to protect our country and our rights.

Please enjoy this wonderful occasion and remember those who have given their lives for this great country. Happy 4th of July! – Frank
