The Fourth of July marks the birth of our country. The Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4, 1776. Thirteen colonies proclaimed they were no longer part of the British Empire. A new nation, the United States of America, sprang to life.
The king’s coat of arms was taken down. People cheered. Cannons boomed. Bells rang out.
This was a bold, dangerous act. Britain had a mighty army; disobedience to the king was a crime punishable by death. But the colonists abhorred British domination.
They yearned to be free, to make their own decisions and govern themselves. For them, the sweet air of liberty was worth the risk of war.
Liberty is what makes our country special. We’re free to say or write what we want, go where we want, and live the way we want. This freedom has inspired people from all over the world to come to the US and become citizens. We’re proud to be Americans and grateful for the opportunities this country has provided to us.
