Happy Independence Day from Grand Avenue!

Posted on: November 11th, 2011 by grandave No Comments

Contrary to popular belief, Independence Day isn't just a day where every furniture and electronic store has an incredible sale. It isn't just a day off work to have a barbecue and watch Fireworks with friends and family. There are also some individuals who think that Independence Day was started in celebration of the fictional thwarting of a worldwide alien invasion as depicted in the 1996 movie starring Will Smith and Bill Pullman.(Check out the most epic speech in a movie ever!)

While those are all fantastic reasons to celebrate, on July 4, 1776, the United States claimed our independence from Britain and democracy was born.

During the American Revolution, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain occurred on July 2, 1776, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence. After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated and revised the Declaration, finally approving it on July 4.

Each year on July 4th, we Americans should take a second and really appreciate the freedom and independence we have the privilege to enjoy every day. We need to reflect on what past Americans have done to ensure that we will always live in the land of the free and home of the brave.

Grand Avenue wants to say Happy 235th Birthday, America!
