Today we celebrate the 13 colonies’ victory against the British in the American Revolution. It was the victory that sparked an overflowing need for freedom, justice, and independence. Along the way, America had to make some adjustments and changes to make sure that the country was sticking to it’s priority of freedom. It’s true that when the United Stated was formed not everyone was free and not everyone was sharing the same joy that the revolutionaries were feeling, but it’s also true that, without the American Revolution, I wouldn’t be a free U.S. Citizen and that rings true for many other people in this country. At the end of the day, all Americans share a mutual history that has affected our current situation in one way or another. On the same tip, all Americans share a mutual responsibility for the future of this country. So, as we celebrate the independence that this country achieved in the past, let’s remember to continue the path to freedom for everyone.
Have a safe and happy Independence Day!
