As we prepare our plans for the 4th of July, take time to reflect upon why Americans celebrate this holiday. Consider what freedom meant for those brave souls in our land and what they sacrificed. The impact that our founding mothers and fathers had on the lives of future Americans and the rest of the world is nothing short of amazing.
United across the land for a solitary purpose – freedom, Americans joined hands to fight at the front lines, defend their homes, and protect their loved ones despite significant and seemingly unsurmountable challenges. Their resiliency, steadfastness, and courage gave birth not only to a great nation, but to a centre of hope for all the world to experience.
This 4th of July, let’s pray that our nation remembers that we can accomplish great things together, especially when the stakes are high and victory seems elusive.
