Get ready for fireworks! I just wanted to remind you the office will be closed for the 4th of July. I hope you get out to enjoy your local celebrations.
I also thought it would be a good idea to reflect on the ideals of life, liberty, equality, and opportunity this holiday represents. These values weave the fiber of our nation and our culture. And they are as significant today as they were when drawn into the Declaration of Independence.
Although we may have come a long way in the last three centuries on issues of social justice, it’s our responsibility to strive toward creating a truly inclusive and equitable society. As you celebrate the 4th of July this year, and in years to come, consider how we can take action to preserve the pursuit of happiness and justice for all.

The Fourth of July is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer part of the British Empire, and thus independent. John Adams, one of the signers, predicted that the Fourth of July would become "the most memorable epoch in the history of America."
The first Fourth of July was celebrated in 1777 with a reading of the Declaration and a parade. In 1870, Congress made it an unpaid holiday for federal employees. In 1938, it became a paid holiday for all workers.
Many people have tried to capture what makes the Fourth of July so special. Some say it's because we're free from British rule others say it's because we celebrate our democracy and freedom. But perhaps what makes Fourth so unique is that it's not just one day set aside to celebrate these things - it's something we commemorate every day by living our lives as Americans according to our shared values.
You can celebrate the Fourth of July in the office by discussing the significance and history and having a fun company lunch before the start of a long weekend to observe the holiday.
