Are we Independent?
Happy Birthday America, Hooray! We are independent of England and its once oppressive policies. But, as of today are we independent of other nations or are we dependent because of our debt?
America’s independent future will be decided by our energy policies and the reduction of our debt. With the loss of jobs and high gas prices, America is hanging it’s hope as an independent country on politicians, bankers and rich Americans. In year 2011; just like in 1776,” We the people”, must find the hope, leadership and sacrifice that will rebound us as a nation and get this country moving again.
Around the country we will be celebrating our annual independence day the 4th of July. We celebrate with our friends and family having barbecue, watching fireworks and kicking off our summer activities.
But the main reason we celebrate it, as a special holiday, is because it is the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. We need to remember what is true independence; in truth and in spirit. I wonder what do the signers of the declarations think of us?
Most importantly it’s a time we embrace the country values in spite of all the difficulty we now face as a country.
So on this independence day, let us remember why we celebrate and just how great this country is. Let us not forget all the men and women who are still serving our country by protecting the very freedom we now enjoy. Happy birthday America!
