America’s favorite summer holiday is right around the corner. Independence Day, or 4th of July, is traditionally a day for an outdoor barbeque, hot dogs and a dazzling fireworks display. It’s an early summer holiday when the great weather has just arrived and we look forward to some leisurely summer afternoons poolside or at the beach. But, as this important holiday comes around, we might all stop a minute and think about the true origins and significance this day holds as a symbol of our freedom and liberty for over 240 years. It was the 4th of July when, in 1776, thirteen colonies stood up and took charge of their own destiny to throw off the heavy hand of the British crown and declare American independence. The Declaration of Independence and our enduring US Constitution were momentous outcomes of that decision. This 4th of July is a great time to stop and appreciate how far we have come as a nation, and to reflect and reclaim, as one nation, our founding ideals.
Remembering the Wisdom of Benjamin Franklin
One of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and founding father, the wise Benjamin Franklin, was quite a wit. He gave us many of our favorite American sayings, which he published in Poor Richard’s Almanac at the young age of 26, among them:
- Remember that time is money.
- A penny saved is a penny earned.
- Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
- God helps them that help themselves.
- Haste makes waste.
- Never leave that till to-morrow which you can do to-day.
- In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.
- Fish and visitors stink in three days.
So in the spirit of helping you save a penny and get things done…
