As we gather to celebrate with family and friends, let us remember the freedoms we hold so dear. July 4th 1776, the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that include Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” No truer words could be said. Hubert. H Humphrey spoke of an America who is wise yet she is young in her zest for renewed justice and equality. All must have the right to feel the gentle winds of liberty across their face and hear the hope of opportunity marching in our great state and country.
As you enjoy the beautiful backdrop of a Minnesota 4th of July, with all the trimmings, let us continue to carry the torch within burning brightly our freedom…standing tall with our pride.
Have a wonderful celebration and stay safe!
