Freedom is a natural desire of any creature. Freedom is an emotion; it is a natural expression of a living thing to be unrestrained, to make its own path, to choose its own destiny. Animals or human – freedom is an expected lifestyle; anything short of freedom is a compromise that no one wants to make.
On 4th of July in 1776, America became a free nation, a free country. On this day today, on 4th of July, America celebrates the Independence Day. The day is a reminder of the sacrifices made and lives lost by so many brave souls. The day is a celebration of a nation’s glory and bravery that led to the independence from British Empire. Americans from all walks of life – of all colors – mark this holiday with parades, picnics, backyard barbecues and fireworks all over the country.
