Independence Day, also called the 4th of July, commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Today we mark the event with concerts, picnics and reunions, but as we celebrate, please take a moment to remember the reason we celebrate. Without the courage and audacity of our forefathers in rebelling against control by another nation, we might be saluting the Union Jack and bowing to a monarch. Thank God our ancestors were brave and fearless enough to take a stand for what they believed!
