Happy 235th birthday to the country I love so dear. May she overcome the barriers of political partisanship and continue to serve as a beacon of hope for the rest of the world for at least another 235 years.
May you have a wonderful Independence Day with your friends and family, and take a moment to reflect on the bravery and sacrifice that our Founding Fathers, the Revolutionary Army, and those who aided in the creation of this great nation. If you are traveling, may you get to and from your destinations safely. If you are serving abroad, may you come home soon to your loved ones.
