Happy July 4th !!

A big "Happy July 4th !!" to everyone. I hope everyone has a wonderful, wonderful day. My day has consisted of cutting the grass and getting ready for the Coke Zero 400 from Daytona. However, I want to encourage everyone to remember what this day, Independence Day, is truly about. Our country is now 233 years old. The men who founded it endured much persecution from the British when they took the bold step of forming this land. Many of them lost everything after putting their signature on The Declaration of Independence. As we hang out with friends and family today eating hamburgers and hotdogs and watching fireworks, let us not forget the sacrifices those brave men and their families made. Let us never take the freedoms we enjoy for granted. If we do, they may be taken from us.
