The Fourth of July. Independence Day. The National Day of the United States!
Ol’ July 4th sure has a lot of names, eh?
When we hear “The Fourth of July,” we tend to think about flags and fireworks, parades and cookouts—and hopefully a big helping of fun times. And that’s pretty cool. You see, we get to enjoy all of those things because of the freedom we enjoy here in the United States, and that freedom came along with us gaining independence.
We all get to enjoy independence because of some courageous Americans who won a battle called the Revolutionary War back in 1776. July 4th, to be precise.
And now, we observe July 4th as our nation’s birthday. The cookout and yard games? That’s part of celebrating the big day. And it’s important we take part in these celebrations, and really enjoy ourselves!
It’s also important that we take a moment to think about what it means to enjoy independence. Turns out, we’re pretty much all patriots. And as patriots, we get to help the country become better, every day.
So take some time on July 4th to daydream about what you’ll do to make America great!
It’s a pretty great thing, having the freedom to make a difference.
