Happy Independence Day! July Fourth is a wonderful and significant holiday. It is an opportunity to remember our past, enjoy the present and look to the future with friends, family and fellow citizens.
Our founding fathers certainly were inspired in establishing this great nation 240 years ago. On July 4, 1776, they officially adopted the Declaration of Independence which boldly affirmed United States’ independence from Great Britain.
Independence Day calls on all of us to recognize and honor the freedoms we all enjoy. Our way of life is not one we should take lightly or for granted. Much was sacrificed for us to enjoy the freedom and independence we have. Let’s honor it and protect it today and tomorrow for all who follow in our footsteps.
On behalf of all of us at the Montana Council, Boy Scouts of America, have a great and memorable Fourth of July.
