Happy 238th Birthday, America!

Independence Day, known as the Fourth of July, is a United States of America (USA) holiday. The USA adopted the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Below are a few of my favorite quotes to help us celebrate America’s birthday and our freedom.

Nothing can dim the light which shines from within. -Maya Angelou, American Poet

My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. -John F. Kennedy, former President of the United States

Europe was created by history. America was created by philosophy.-Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of Britain

Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live. -Dorothy Thompson, American Journalist and Writer

The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon. -George Washington, first President of the United States

Be a leader, like these national leaders, and move to action TODAY.
