“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; …” –Excerpt from Declaration of Independence as originally written by Thomas Jefferson, 1776. ME 1:29, Papers 1:315
240 years have passed and we still have the freedoms our forefathers fought for and our servicemen and servicewoman continue to fight for every day. We thank them for their sacrifice to give us these precious gifts that not all possess.
Now more than ever is the time to enjoy those rights we have that our country was founded on. Go out and follow your dream to make a better life for yourself and your family. Experience liberty by following your own thoughts, words, or actions to express who you are as an individual.
And our favorite, the pursuit of happiness. We happen to do it with flowers and would love to help you express yourself with flowers if that is something of interest to you. But this Independence Day, do something that truly makes you happy. Be free to get out of your daily routine, try something new, experience the wonderful things life has to offer.
Our forefathers fought and sacrificed to give us these rights. We are to live them to the fullest and never take them for granted. May you have a safe and happy holiday weekend full of life, liberty and happiness.
