Independence Day is next week! The day on which we celebrate our freedom, we celebrate becoming the greatest nation on earth.
Freedom is not free. It came at a great cost. The founders pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor for the freedom of this nation. They gave up so much so that we could be free. We must never forget, never stop fighting for America.
I encourage you to watch this video from HBO's John Adams. We watch it every year. It reminds us what freedom really means. (All the videos from John Adams had the embed code disabled, so click the video or the link beneath it to go to YouTube.)
And for laughs about America's "break up" with England, check out this video. ;)
