Happy Independence Day! It was a fight for our freedom, against a sovereign King. Americans fought, and sacrificed most everything. It was the principle: to live by our own morals and laws. Until victory over the British, Americans would not pause. To defend America's independence – we were prepared. And on this day in 1776, Thomas Jefferson officially declared: Americans deserve to observe their own customs and rights! And for this sake, our forefathers were willing to fight! More than eight years of war before we'd officially win, And we still use this day to celebrate this country we live in. Even if you’re an American celebrating from abroad, You are part of a tradition, a history, and a country we applaud. So, cheers! Here's to land of the free, the home of the brave! We thank our ancestors and first Americans who were able to pave Their way to a country run by its people, not a ruler. Happy birthday to a nation that couldn’t be cooler!
