Freedom is one of the deepest and noblest aspirations of the human spirit. – President Ronald Reagan
On July 4, 1776 – 245 years ago today – the original 13 colonies declared their independence from British rule and established the United States of America. This watershed event has long served as a beacon of hope for the world. The Massachusetts House Republican Caucus joins with Americans everywhere today to celebrate Independence Day, and to offer our thanks to the many servicemen and women who continue to uphold the essential freedoms our forefathers envisioned for our nation more than two centuries ago. Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
