The 4th

Tradition on the 4th
Deland, Florida

We all have traditions.  In this country we have a long standing tradition of commemorating the birth of our nation and the years since that we have kept its citizens free.  Today, we truly are a melting pot, a cross section of every country of the world.  We celebrate the fact that for one special occasion, all of us, together have something in common.

America, the beautiful, is not only the home of brave, but also the land of the free.  Liberty is simply a noun shared by a diverse group of people respecting the rights of each other.  We choose to be free and will fight if necessary to protect those truths which we truly hold evident such as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Regardless, of what others might say,  the best of times still lie ahead as we continue to become more diverse.  No other country comes close to replicating our success nor our mantra.  My father and his brothers served this country for that very reason,  one as a non combatant and the other as a combatant.  We honor those by preserving their memory keeping liberty's torch lit.
