It is July, and most importantly, we will be celebrating “Independence Day.” The United States is the only country with a known birthday. There are no Republicans or Democrats on the Fourth of July. All are Americans.

Those words describe what the 4th of July Holiday means for millions of Americans and Freedom seeking immigrants like myself and my family. We left tyranny and were greeted with freedom in this beautiful land called the United States of America.

The U.S. was built by immigrants and strengthened by all those who landed at Ellis Island and brought their culture, traditions, and language. This country is multi-cultural, multi-lingual, and full of traditions, yet we all are Americans.

Our Fraternity as well is multi-cultural and multi-lingual, but we all believe in the same, Masonry, which again was the source that planted seeds in developing this great country. The Constitution of the United States was mainly established and written by Mason Brothers, who knew the path to success and longevity for a Nation that is beginning to take its baby steps. Our constitution is the foundation of this Nation!

We do not only celebrate the Independence date that day, but we also celebrate the birth of Masonry for this great country.

We walk the same path as Brothers who walked before us and we should keep these traditions of this great country and masonry for years and decades to come.

Have a Happy, safe, fun, and love-filled Fourth of July!

Thank you
