Happy Independence Day!

It was 243 years ago that America was born, July 4, 1976.

On July 4, it seems like more American flags can be seen proudly waving, and that is good. As this country celebrates Independence Day, let’s realize that we are very blessed to live here.

On July 4, 1776, a total of 56 colonial leaders signed the Declaration of Independence. With this signing, these leaders declared themselves, along with the 2.5 million people living in the 13 colonies, members of a new, independent nation, the United States of America. July 4, 2019, marks the 243rd anniversary of the country’s founding.
