Two Hundred and forty one years ago, our Founding Fathers were under what they considered to be a tyrannical rule. After several years of fighting they achieved their independence from Great Britain, creating the country we know and love today. Ever since then, America has been a beacon of hope for anybody in this world that seeks freedom. On this very important day, Americans gather to celebrate the virtue that we hold most dear with fireworks, concerts, barbeques and more!
