"Independence Day serves as special time for Americans to celebrate the sovereignty of this great nation. It symbolizes the pivotal moment when are founding fathers declared their official separation from Great Britain and, and the birth of America. Today, the 4th of July continues to remind us of the accomplishments and successes that we have achieved on our own soil.
"Now more than ever, it is important to remember the precious liberties our founding fathers blessed us with on this great day. Throughout history our independence has been tirelessly defended by our dedicated veterans and service members--always in the name of freedom.
"Despite our differences, we all stand together on July 4th as Americans to honor our colors and celebrate the patriotism of this proud nation. I hope you and your families attend a parade, watch fireworks, or enjoy a barbeque with neighbors to remember the remarkable evolution of our homeland."
