The 4th of July is a day that is close to the hearts of all Americans. It was on this historic date that, centuries ago, America declared its independence from Britain, making it at once master of its own destiny as well as a fledgling nation that would be taking its first baby steps all by itself. Like every person who beats out independently, the founding fathers must have experienced large doses of the exhilaration of freedom alloyed with the seriousness of the responsibility of leading so many people safely into the future.
Centuries later, America has become a nation that exerts a massive influence on the world. Emulated, envied and emigrated to, the Free World has given more people hope and a chance to see new dreams than any other nation on earth.
