Happy Independence Day

Today like our forefathers before us we will embrace the spirit of FREEDOM, band together as a community and fight against those who oppress us…those for us being the clock, fatigue and an unhealthy lifestyle.  We will work together in pairs to celebrate a few important years and moments in our nations founding.  Many important events led to the founding of our great nation but I have chosen a few to highlight as we refresh our spirit and belief in FREEDOM.  Follow along below…
