Fireworks, barbeques, pool parties, family reunions and live music will mark the much anticipated 4th of July this coming Monday. A coveted summer holiday for Americans, friends and family will gather to enjoy good food and games while sitting under the dark sky lit by bright, fiery lights.
While the 4th of July seems all fun and games (which it should be), as Americans we need to recognize why we have such a day to celebrate. This date marks when our country broke free from Great Britain’s rule and gained independence in signing the Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776. We celebrate with fireworks to remember our freedom and traditions that the United States holds. This day is a symbol of our incredible nation’s beliefs and independence.
To entrepreneurs, this day should be regarded as especially important. We are allowed to have our own thoughts, ideas and dreams. Entrepreneurs are given a second chance when they mess up. American’s encourage growth and innovation in communities.
We tend to forget that not everyone has the freedom and liberties that we have. People from all over the world come to our country in hopes of living a better life. We are blessed and lucky that we can aspire to seek The American Dream.
So, this Independence Day, just remember to be thankful for your freedom while you are eating that hot dog. From all of us at Think Big Partners, have a fun and safe 4th of July!
