Half of 2019 is already over and Independence Day, celebrating a part of our American history, is here once again. As people gather with family and friends to enjoy the outdoors, cookouts, and of course the fireworks, let’s take a moment to remember the reason we celebrate every July 4th.  Independence Day commemorates the signing of the Declaration of Independence – ratified on July 4th 1776.

Zekiah Honors the Fallen on Memorial Day

While the mention of Memorial Day causes many Americans to feel joy in the unofficial “start of summer”, vacations, and backyard bar-b-ques, the meaning of Memorial Day is far more meaningful.
