“Each year, the Fourth of July is a time for families, friends, neighbors, and communities to come together and celebrate the birth of this great nation. As you hear the fireworks and smell the food on the grill and watch the gorgeous American sunset, it is important to remember those who sacrifice so much for the country that we love.

Join me in prayer and celebration for those serving in our Armed Forces who protect our freedom and defend that liberty that our founding fathers enshrined so many years ago.

This weekend, we celebrate as “one nation under God.” And let us take time to be thankful for the blessings that God has given our families, our communities, and our country. As it is written in Psalm 33:12 “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” And may God bless you and your family, and may He continue to bless the United States of America.

Happy Independence Day from my family to yours.”

God bless,


Gregg Harper
Member of Congress
