Independence Day celebrates the birthday of the United States of America. Founded July 4th, 1776, with the signing of the Declaration of Independence, America is celebrating its 242nd birthday this year.
The United States is truly a diverse nation made up of dynamic people and each year on July 4, Americans celebrate our freedom and independence with barbecues, picnics, and family gatherings.
The American ideal, which is the foundation for this celebration, is as true today as it was when the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, “…that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Let us never forget that our independence and our freedom were worth fighting for in 1776, and worthy of our efforts to maintain today. Please take time to thank the members of our military and public safety who place their lives on the line each day to protect the American way of life.
From all of us here at New Mexico Business Coalition, we hope you have a safe and blessed Independence Day celebration! The NMBC office will be closed on July 4.
