America is rather young! Thinking about our Fourth of July celebrations this year, I am reminded that our nation is not quite 250 years old. That’s fairly young compared to many countries in the world who measure their ages in the hundreds and thousands of years. But what we lack in age we have made up for in impact.
In our short history we have become the most powerful and most influential nation on earth in our modern world. It’s safe to say that for the last 100 years or more, the rest of the world has been trying to catch up with the United States.
Of course, one of the reasons we have been so successful is our independence, so different than many other nations. By declaration and revolution, brought about by the blessing of God and the wisdom of our founding fathers, America was born through adversity into prosperity in a relatively short period of time.
And we celebrate our hard-won freedoms today – with family, friends, and colleagues – and continue to move forward in hope that God will bless our land from sea to shining shore, once more.
From all of us at Core Technology Solutions, Happy Fourth!
