-As usual YHC had a dress rehearsal for the PD Flag Raising Ceremony. Here’s an excerpt:
Each 4th of July, as we celebrate the birth of this great nation, we must remember to give thanks. Thanks for our freedom, our liberty, and our independence.
Two hundred and forty-six years ago, our Founding Fathers dared to dream of a free republic of the people. Today commemorates the day the Declaration of Independence was adopted in 1776. Introduced by the Second Continental Congress, the statement outlined that the 13 American colonies were united, independent states, no longer subject to the British monarch.
Today, we honor those colonists who fought for our freedom and pledged their lives to defend our inviolable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. They left a legacy that lives on today through generations of Americans who have made that same pledge to boldly stand up against tyranny, oppression, and persecution.
Those who serve in our armed forces, and their families, have given so much to defend the ideals and free institutions we so often take for granted. Their dedication reminds us that freedom is not free and preserving America’s liberties comes with a heavy cost. Today, as we celebrate our nation’s birth, let us honor their service and strive to be worthy of their tremendous sacrifices.
Until next time ~Spaulding
