Happy July 4th!

The Fourth of July stands for our country’s declaration of independence.  This historical holiday is commemorated each year as a special time to gather with friends, family, and neighbors to celebrate with some good old-fashioned American summer fun.  That usually means fireworks, picnics, barbecue, baseball, and the beach.  Whether you choose a backyard barbecue, a pool party, or a beach bash take a moment to reflect on this day and be thankful for the freedom you have.

As inspiration for your celebrations, Allen and I have gathered the following collection of patriotic quotes.
