Happy Independence Day!
This Fourth of July, we might find ourselves celebrating with fireworks, barbecuing, congregating with loved ones and enjoying our precious free time with a good day trip to the beach – a far cry from what our founding fathers would have done. But July Fourth is also a time to step back, take stock and appreciate the glorious Freedoms we enjoy every day and make you proud to be an American.
This month is actually another month of reflection as we approach the anniversary of our Country’s first day of Independence hundreds of years ago. With our Brother, PM George Washington at the helm, many other Freemasons such as Benjamin Franklin, Paul Revere, and John Hancock all played a significant part in the Great American Revolution that led to this celebratory day.
This great day having come into fruition through the arduous work of Brothers who had a vision, of Brothers who were very dedicated, of Brothers who put their minds together to make that vision become a reality. That vision eventually became the United States of America and we all have the privilege of celebrating this great day every Fourth of July.
