With July 4th coming up this week, it makes me start to think about our individual freedom and independence. I think the all mighty state of New Hampshire said it best "Live free or Die" If you didn't already know, this has been the official state motto since 1945. It is possibly the best-known state motto because of its assertive independence historically found in American political philosophy. This is the season of freedom! Get out and enjoy the sunshine today and stop by Arcadia while you're at it!
