Old Guys Rule Independence Day

A bit of history from one Old Guy to another - John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail after signing of the Declaration of Independence. He commented about how he thought the 4th of July would be celebrated, “I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary festival... It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.” Maybe he’s the one who set the tone for how we continue to celebrate our independence.

This 4th of July weekend Americans will be celebrating in a variety of ways. Some will celebrate over a grill surrounded by friends and family, while others will enjoy catching some rays and some waves at the beach. Parades, baseball games, picnics and fireworks will be the norm.

For us, we may try to do everything above and then some, but we will remember no matter what we’re doing that we are grateful for our independence and to those who have sacrificed and served. It was 235 years ago that we declared our independence as a nation. However that fight for freedom began long before our forefathers signed the Declaration of Independence and continues today. We hope to never take our freedom for granted. We won’t forget that it has come at a price.

We wish you and yours an incredible 4th of July however you choose to spend it. We hope it is fun and befitting of the Old Guys Rule state of mind.

If you/your family has served or sacrificed for our country, we sincerely thank you.
