Happy Independence Day, and an essay reprised…

Independence Day 2018

Happy Birthday America! Well, sort of. Just declaring themselves free was only an opening chapter. Freedom had to be won.

Last year, Knife Rights asked Ethan Becker to pen an essay of his thoughts on America’s Independence Day.  Chairman Doug Ritter gave his thoughts this year, which you can read here, but sharing this year’s essay does not let me show off my awesome photoshopping skills.


Enjoy your Holiday America, and thank you to all that have fought to give us the freedom we celebrate today.

You can read more of my thoughts here.

    Speaking of Doug Ritter, I donated to Knife Rights and have won a knife. It’s not too late to get in on this.

    America is a great country and Independence Day is a celebration for many people. Independence Day is considered the birthday of the United States as a free and independent country. Most Americans call this holiday simply by its date – Fourth of July.
    All Americans honor their story, because it is filled with many interesting and important events for every American. I read this essay and it was very informative for me, most recently I had to write a college papers on the importance of historical events for our country. You can read my college papers at Paperial. I think you will be interested to know my thoughts about this. The Fourth of July national holiday is currently full of fireworks, picnics and other outdoor events, as well as concerts and patriotic speeches, festivals and historical reconstructions. Each may rest on that day.

    Writing good is a problem for both the student and the professional writer. Writing research papers also takes a lot of time, and therefore I use the educational writing service that you can find if you click here. I think that it will be very useful for everyone because we all constantly do not have enough time.
