Attorney General Sean Reyes’ 2017 Independence Day Message

Attorney General Sean Reyes

“Each year, I look forward to Independence Day and am reminded of our nation’s humble, spiritual roots. Our Republic’s founders came from diverse backgrounds and origins. And despite their differences, they united to build a legacy of liberty and freedom that has stood the test of time. As we celebrate Independence Day—with fireworks, parades, and backyard barbeques—I pray we will appreciate the God-given blessings of liberty and opportunity that have made America a shining city on a hill; a light to inspire the oppressed and attract immigrants who have in turn enriched our culture and our country.  

“May we also honor those who have sacrificed and served, and those who continue to serve at home and abroad, to preserve our liberty and prosperity. This includes our men and women of the military along with law enforcement and first responders. We always owe a debt to those who confront danger to allow us to live in peace and security.

“As we celebrate on this extended weekend, please be careful, responsible and patient, particularly on the roads. 

“God bless America.”
