Does Independence Day Matter Today?


July 4th is celebrated as Independence Day in the United States. There are cookouts, family gatherings and fireworks. There’s swimming, sporting events, boating, playing games, and a lot of other activity. Some even use this time to just spend their holiday doing nothing.

But what does July 4th signify as we celebrate our Independence Day?

Some of us show gratitude toward the original 13 Colonies in their stand for liberty. In remembrance of their departure from the British Kingdom in 1776, we realize that July 4th is so much more than cooking on a grill!

However, a disappointingly smaller number of us realize that Independence Day is also much more than simple political freedom or a license to self-indulgence.
