On July 4th, we celebrate the birth of our Nation. Since 1776, when the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia, people from around the world have left their homelands to come to America for freedom and opportunity.
As we gather with family and friends for barbeques and picnics, baseball games, music and fireworks, let’s take a moment to remember our history, heritage and to appreciate those who have fought for life, liberty and freedom. Let us ensure that we preserve America’s great future by remaining true to the United States Constitution.
My wish is that everyone, home or away, enjoys this important holiday. For all those who are traveling, please be especially careful on the roadways.
I hope you have a safe and enjoyable Fourth of July.
Happy Birthday, America!
ANDREW J. LANZA
Senator, 24th Dist.
