Celebrate Freedom Week

Taking a closer look at the Declaration of Independence in relation to the rich diversity of our people as a nation, immigrants, and Veterans Day. Where did Americans come from? When the early explorers landed in the Americas there were people already here, but where did they come from? Americans have come from all walks of life and they have come to the United States for all sorts of reasons. As you look around your classroom, you will see Americans from Asia, Europe, South America, Africa, Mexico, Canada and mix of many ethnicities.

We are all Americans for one reason though and that is for the freedoms we celebrate this week. We celebrate the demand for “no taxation without representation.” We celebrate the highest law of the land, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which list the freedoms we enjoy everyday.

We celebrate our colorful history and the rich diversity of our people as a nation of immigrants. Most importantly, today we celebrate our veterans, the men and women who gave their lives so that we may celebrate these freedoms. Know that nothing is free and that we ALL must give something to be free and to be an American. Celebrate Freedom Week!
