The 4th of July is special to me because that's when our nation won its independence from England! I am proud to be an American and to live in the United States. We have so many freedoms that other countries do not have. We, as a nation have the freedom to worship any way we like and the freedom of free speech.

I plan to celebrate the holiday by spending time with family, friends and eating some good food. Remember to say a prayer and to thank the military for the sacrifices they make on a daily basis! Have a blessed and safe holiday weekend! What are your plans for this holiday weekend and what does the 4th of July mean to you?
