Happy Independence Day, United States of America

July 4, 1776, was the historic day when the Continental Congress approved the Declaration of Independence. Every year, Americans rejoice and celebrate Independence Day, or the 4th of July, with great fanfare. Amidst colorful parades, flag hoisting ceremonies, and barbecue parties, Americans remember the suffering their forefathers endured to win them precious freedom.

I have included a quote by Frederick Douglas, a great man and ambassador that everyone should learn about: "The problem is whether the American people have loyalty enough, honor enough, patriotism enough, to live up to their own constitution."
I agree with Mr. Douglas, that we should all read and learn the Constitution of the United States. This act alone will improve the United States and force us to live up to our own ideals.

Happy Independence Day!
