We the People of Exodus, on Independence Day

At Exodus Moving and Storage we are very patriotic. We are committed to supporting those who support our freedom. On this 4th of July we simply can’t help but be thankful for the red, white and blue.

In 1776 five people were appointed to create a draft about freedom. The colonies sought separation from Great Britain and Robert Livingston, John Adams, Roger Sherman and Benjamin Franklin joined Thomas Jefferson to write what is now known as the Declaration of Independence. And while it was actually signed on the second of July instead of the 4th, on parchment instead of paper, this historic document is now held as a symbol of freedom in our great country. In a well known letter written by Adams to his wife:

“The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.”

Today as always, we are proud to be Americans and proud to be a company based in this great nation. We believe that the US was founded on some very important ideas about freedom. And throughout the year we are happy to support those who are making life better for the military members and family who give up so much to protect that freedom.

So this year as you are BBQing with family and friends, setting off fireworks and hopefully doing what Adams referred to as “pomp and parade”, we would like to encourage you to take the celebration one step further. We support the above organizations because we believe in this great country of ours. If you haven’t taken a look at them to see how you can get involved, we would like to invite you to do so.

From the Exodus family to yours, Happy Independence Day!
