Happy Birthday, America!!

I want to take a break from writing about legal issues today to wish everyone (including my hard working staff, attorneys, colleagues, friends, family and fellow bloggers) a wonderful Fourth of July. The birth of our country through the Declaration of Independence 232 years ago began an amazing experiment that continues to this day. The values of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that were laid out by Thomas Jefferson many years ago deserve to be celebrated every day. I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy the picnics, parades and fireworks that bring family and friends together on this special day.

And, as we enjoy this holiday, let us remember the men and women who are serving our country around the world right now. They are bright examples of what this country has to offer. Because of the sacrifice of our servicemen, we are able to celebrate the freedoms of this country today.
