Independence Day serves as an occasion to reflect upon the principles and values that define the United States of America.
This is a time to honor our founders' vision, courage, and sacrifices, through which they secured the cherished gift of freedom from tyranny. Each person in that founding generation of Americans played an important role in building the country we live in today.
Independence Day reminds us to embrace our differences and engage in constructive dialogue. Through this, we may help every citizen feel they are furthering the American experiment.
I encourage you to take a moment to appreciate the freedoms we enjoy and reflect upon the role each of us plays in upholding the principles upon which our nation was built.
