The Bloomfield RWC honors this day as the birth of the greatest nation in the world. The building of the nation did not come by accident, did not come without price, and did not come without responsibility. We must continue the battle for freedom and liberty in the modern day with personal responsibility, honoring the men and women in our armed forces, and protecting the Constitution of the United States of America. The founding fathers warned future generations of the fragility of the republic, and yet encouraged the celebration of the signing to the Declaration of Independence. The signing of the document was actually July 2, 1776 but then had some some revisions and officially approved on July 4, 1776. John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail:
"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It out to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, funs, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of the continent to the other, fro this time forward forever more."
As you celebrate this great country this July 4th holiday, with all the pomp and festivities of tradition the Bloomfield RWC also remembers the price to birth this nation, raise this nation up, and move forward as the beacon of democracy to the rest of the world. This is a day to celebrate each Patriot Heart!
