What The Fourth Of July Means To Us

It represents the sacrifices made by our forefathers and by the men and women of today in order to give us the country that we love so much today”…

The Fourth of July Is Coming Up Fast!

The Fourth of July is where we celebrate our nation’s independence with cookouts and fireworks. It’s one of the most fun holidays of the year. It’s the middle of summer, and everyone is enjoying the warm weather in the company of friends and family at home. With all of the excitement and festivities that surround this holiday, it can be hard to overlook the reason why we even celebrate it.

The Fourth of July holds so much meaning. It goes back to the Thirteen Colonies, as we all know, and it begins with the idea of freedom. Freedom is something that not everyone has access to, and we are fortunate to live in a country where people fought, and still fight, for that cherished right we have today.

Owning a home is part of the American Dream. And it’s a freedom you can’t enjoy in the same way in many other places.

While the Fourth of July is a fun holiday (our family favorite by far), we must not forget why we celebrate. On this 2020 Independence Day, while we are enjoying fireworks and the company of friends and family, we must make time to think about our country’s independence and what is being done today to keep it and to acknowledge that every life matters.

Cheers to the foundations of our freedom.
