The 4th of July is fast approaching.
Question: What does Independence Day mean to you?
Leon Roland (Hornsby):
It means freedom for this United States against the British.
We always compete in the Fourth of July Parade, fold the flag and first one thing and another.
Jose Martinez (Finger):
Independence Day is a wonderful day. It’s a day of remembrance that we are a free nation, that we have liberty, that we can do the things that other countries are not allowed to do, and we ought to remember on this day that there are countries out there with people that wish they could do some of the things that we do.
It means all the soldiers that fought for our rights.
Stephen Berryman (Ramer):
For me that falls on multiple reasons. You have to look at the independence that we fought for from England to give us the freedoms that we have. You have to look at the wars we have fought to keep that independence and the rights and freedoms that we have in this country.
Misty Huckabee (Ramer):
Independence Day is freedom of speech, but we have lost a lot of that. I was in the hospital hurt for over a month. I’m a smoker, but you have to walk 10 miles to smoke. We’ve lost a lot of our privileges, I think. I just think you’re supposed to have freedom of speech.
