One of the biggest holidays in the United States, July 4th celebrates the adoption and commemoration of the Declaration of Independence. This was instrumental in sparking the war against the British and eventually gaining freedom in the 13 colonies. While the American colonies were under the British umbrella of colonies, they were being taxed unfairly and they felt that if they were to be taxed so harshly, they should have representation in the British law making process. This did not pan out, leading to the eventual creation of the greatest break-up letter in American History haha. July 4th is a reminder that while every country has positive and negative aspects of their history, independence is important for any new nation and is the ultimate reason why we have the rights we enjoy today. Hope everyone enjoys the festivities today!
