Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your caring thoughts, compassionate emails, and generous outpouring of support. We appreciate your kindness so very much.
Today we will not only celebrate the 235th year since signing the Declaration of Independence, we will also celebrate you — our fellow citizens and friends — who strive to make this country better each day.
So while we are out waving our flags, hopping along in three-legged races, sipping lemonade and enjoying time with our friends and families, let's also try to be mindful of the sacrifices so many men and women have made throughout history and today, to uphold our democracy.
It is a privilege to have only ever known freedom.
