Happy Fourth of July, everyone!
The Fourth of July became an important day in American history ever since it declared independence from British colonial rule by signing the Declaration of Independence, giving birth to American freedom as it dawns upon us all.
It was 1941 when the then government decided to hold this auspicious day as a public holiday. In modern times, people would cherish it by hosting public or private gatherings and keeping everything else aside—enjoying the freedom with their loved ones—be it through traditional food like hot dogs, hamburgers, and s’mores and indulging in boat races and whatnot. In short, people love to have a good time.
In 246 years, America has become one of the most successful nations in terms of providing quality of life in food, healthcare, education, infrastructure, etc. The country has produced or been a place of abode for some of the world’s finest and most interesting personalities, with the likes of Abraham Lincoln, Nicola Tesla, Martin Luther King Jr., and Muhammad Ali among countless others.
And, when you compare it to any other nation, you will see that it has been a safe haven for the entire world. Here is what George Washington, one of the founding fathers, said about the nation: “I had always hoped that this land might become a safe and agreeable asylum to the virtuous and persecuted part of mankind, to whatever nation they might belong.”
