Freedom is one of the deepest and noblest aspirations of the human spirit. – President Ronald Reagan, in his Second Inaugural Address delivered on January 21, 1985

On July 4, 1776 – exactly 248 years ago today – the original 13 colonies declared their freedom from British rule to establish the United States of America. The signing of the Declaration of Independence was a watershed event that continues to serve as a source of inspiration and a beacon of hope around the world.

As we gather today with friends and family, let us not forget the many sacrifices that have been made, and continue to be made, by our servicemen and women to help preserve the many freedoms we enjoy that trace their roots back to this historic day nearly 2 ½ centuries ago. The Massachusetts House Republican Caucus wishes everyone a very Safe and Happy Fourth of July!
