Happy 4th of July from American Lens!
We want to thank all of our readers as we celebrate this year’s Independence day.
For those of you just joining us – don’t forget to sign up for our weekly newsletter!
We’d like share an appropriate quote one of our Founding Fathers with you this 4th of July.
“It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more. You will think me transported with Enthusiasm but I am not.
I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not.” ”“ John Adams
Hopefully, your day is being spent with family and friends and not at the emergency room.
Be safe out there everyone.
