Spanberger Statement on Independence Day

 HENRICO, V.A. – U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today issued the following statement to mark the Fourth of July.

“Today, Central Virginians are celebrating the 243rd birthday of our republic. As we march in parades, gather at family barbecues, and watch firework displays, this special day also serves as an opportunity to reflect on the principles articulated at our nation’s founding. We also mark the long, arduous struggle to achieve these values of freedom and justice for all citizens, and we honor those throughout our history who’ve promoted and defended these principles—whether through putting on the uniform or fighting for the liberty of their fellow Americans. As we remember those who came before, we are reminded that patriotism means far more than wearing certain colors on certain days. Rather, it’s about a stalwart commitment to the promise of our nation’s ideals and the continued pursuit of a stronger, brighter future for the next generation of Americans. As we continue this 243-year pursuit, I’d like to wish all Central Virginians a memorable and wonderful Fourth of July.”
