On this Independence Day,  Americans should be free from voter suppression and the deprivation of Our God-given rights: “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed ... with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

The Fourth of July is USA Independence Day and a federal holiday since 1941, but the tradition of Independence Day celebrations goes back to the 18th century and the American Revolution.

On July 2nd, 1776, the Continental Congress voted in favor of independence, and two days later delegates from the 13 colonies adopted the Declaration of Independence, a historic document drafted by Thomas Jefferson

From 1776 to this very day, July 4th is celebrated with festivities ranging from fireworks, parades, and concerts to more casual family gatherings and barbecues. Since this year falls on Sunday, the federal holiday will be observed tomorrow, July 5, 2021.

The USA is now and forever will continue to be a proud nation of immigrants, regardless of who they are and where they come from.
