The human spirit desires liberty. Everyone, everywhere in the world, should have what the human spirit desires most of all.
The desire for liberty, freedom, burns like an ember in the souls of people in every nation on earth. It always has. It always will.
What has made the United States exceptional for the last 237 years has been the fact that it has been an inspiration for those around the world who know in their hearts that liberty is their birthright.
Let us always remember to be that example for those whose embers burn. And let us remember that, no matter how faint those embers burn, the human spirit will always refuse to be snuffed out or extinguished.
Let the embers burn brighter here–and everywhere on earth.
Happy Independence Day!
