As we honor America on this anniversary of its establishment as a free nation, let us remember that our freedom is maintained by those who put their lives on the line in defense of their nation. Please pray for the welfare of our brave soldiers who are, right now, in harm’s way in far-flung battlefields around the world. Let us honor their sacrifice by being thankful and appreciative of what they do. Let us return to the values on which this great country was founded.
May America always affirm its allegiance to the Creator of the Universe. May this country always be blessed with divine protection and endure forever.

We eat matzah on Pesach because it recalls the suddenness of the Exodus that happened so quickly there was no time for the dough to rise. On Sukkot, we leave our homes and establish residence in a sukkah to remember, “In sukkot did I house the children of Israel when I took them out of Egypt.”
This week we celebrate the anniversary of America’s independence, an event of great magnitude in the history of mans’ struggle for freedom. At a time like this we should be humble and realize that we are the beneficiaries of the dedication and sacrifice of countless others who came before us and built up and defended America.
