On this day in 1776, a group of rebels committed an act of treason when they adopted one of the most important documents in the history of Man. No longer would we be subjects of the crown. From that day forward, we were a free nation. Free to make our own laws and live as we saw fit. Many good and brave people have fought, and died, for that ideal. So while you enjoy the cookouts with the family and the parades and fireworks, please remember the men and women who've fought, and fallen, in the name of freedom.
These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.
Those Who Say That We're In A Time When There Are No Heroes, They Just Don't Know Where To Look.
