Happy Independence Day
Today we celebrate our past.
Independence Day is a remembrance of our ancestors that make up American history. Forefathers like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and Benjamin Franklin sacrificed their lives to live out what they believed. They fought for American independence and won our freedom in the 18th century.
I join you in that celebration.
At the same time, I propose we become just as serious about celebrating our future and the young people who will succeed us, assuming the reigns of leadership from us. Do we care enough about our nation to become consumed with preparing for a great future? What if we celebrated the influence our kids are building; the gifts they are uncovering and the potential they are cultivating?
We celebrate our past today with fireworks and barbecues.
The best way we can celebrate our future?
It is by investing in students, who make up the future leaders of our nation and our world. By investing in them, we will secure good leadership for decades and even centuries to come.
We cannot choose our ancestors, but we can influence our descendants.
