America’s independence is significant in part because, to many people worldwide, it’s the defining characteristic of our country and its citizens.
Many other countries came together because of a common language, religion or ethnicity. That’s how the countries in South and Central America, for example, came to be. The United States of America, by contrast, was born because its founders believed in a series of principles and ideas. Having escaped religious persecution in Europe, the first non-native Americans were firm defenders of a number of things including: liberty, freedom and opportunity.
🇺🇸Have a happy and safe Independence Day!🇺🇸
