Independence Day… United States
“In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt
The Fourth of July holiday is upon us. How many Americans think about our freedom on this day of Independence? Independence Day is the commemoration of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. This declaration gained the United Stated independence from Great Britain.
The estimated number of citizens living in this new independent nation in 1776:
- 2.5 million
The estimated population on July 4, 2010:
- 309.6 million
The Fourth of July is the day we pay homage to our Founding Fathers. It is also a day to honor and pay tribute to the brave men and women who have fought and died to maintain our freedom. And July 4th is a day when we pay homage to our own freedom.
“Those who won our independence believed liberty to be the secret of happiness and courage to be the secret of liberty.”
Louis D. Brandeis
