   As you start grilling your burgers and hot dogs, and enjoy fireworks at your favorite park… remember this is a day celebrating America’s Independence.


   Our Founding Fathers offered a declaration to its citizenry in order to establish a fledgling country. A revolution ensued. All of this was initiated 234 years ago (1776) in secrecy, for it was treason against the British Crown to take such a stand. Eventually, a nation was born and evolved. Today, we enjoy Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness… because of these brave patriots.


President James Monroe

James Monroe

   Surprisingly, 50 years later to the day in 1826, two original signers of the Declaration of Independence (and former presidents) offered their final breath: John Adams and Thomas Jefferson; each sure the other still lived. Five years later on this day, former President James Monroe also passed on to the ages in 1831. The only Chief Executive born on this day in 1872 Calvin Coolidge.

   A happy 4th of July!

Until next time>                               “never forget”
