Good afternoon,

My family and I would like to wish you, your family and friends a Happy Independence Day!  July 4th marks the day our country’s founders signed the Declaration of Independence, making the United States its own nation.  While our country often times seems torn apart by political ideas, I believe we live in the greatest nation on earth.  This Independence Day, let’s all celebrate the unique freedoms living in the United States affords us. God bless America!
