“Today, we celebrate America’s 240th birthday.

We honor the memory of our Founding Mothers and Fathers, patriots, and heroes. They stood in the face of tyranny, and against all odds, they prevailed in the fight for our independence.

They then established a government like nothing else the world had ever seen.

Because of our Founders’ courage and principles, and the grace of God, America has become an exceptional nation.

As we pause to celebrate Independence Day with our families and friends, let’s remember their unwavering resolve to always protect our freedom.

Let us endeavor to leave future generations a nation freer and more prosperous than the one we inherited.

Ronald Reagan once said, freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.

We don’t pass it down in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and passed on so they can do the same.

Or one day, in our sunset years, we’ll be telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in America when women and men were free.

Not on our watch. God Bless you, and God Bless the United States of America.”
