Happy Birthday America!

Today, July 4th, we celebrate Independence Day, the 241st birthday of America!

We also commemorate those who signed the Declaration of Independence, those who were willing to risk so much.

The signers of the Declaration pledged their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor to fight tyranny.

Indeed, many of the signers suffered for their actions. Some were hunted, lost homes and property, fled with their families to avoid capture, and had family members captured or killed. Yet despite the high cost, no signer went back on his personal pledge and America did win its freedom!

What our Founding Fathers gave us is priceless, we must not forget, we must continue to build on their dedication to duty, honor, country.
