Every Fourth of July is a reason to celebrate America. Picnics, fireworks and a day off from work is reason enough for happiness. But do you know why Americans celebrate America? There are two main reasons:
We celebrate America’s official separation from the original 13 colonies under British rule.We celebrate the Declaration of Independence—the document that embodies the meaning of being American and the powers, privileges, responsibilities and governance that go along with that honor.
Military.com discusses the Declaration of Independence:
Although written in a different time with different social
norms and commonly accepted philosophies, the U.S.
has made consistent strides to truly embody the words,
“we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are
created equal…” This idea has emboldened us to forge
our own paths as individuals and as a nation. At great risk
have Americans stood up to many forms of tyranny and
oppression, and however long it takes, liberty prevails.
Although the times are always changing, there will never
be a day when this document does not hold immense
importance to the United States or its people.
