Goooooood Morning Oklahoma!!
So we are about to go into the Independence Day weekend and I got to thinking what this holiday means to us as a nation and it’s people. When our forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence they were making a statement and taking a stand. The freedom we have today is thanks in large part to their actions that July 4th afternoon.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Pretty powerful stuff!!
Please have a great 4th of July. See your family, eat too much, be safe and above all….HAVE FUN!!
