INDEPENDENCE DAY, 2004

On Independence Day, we remember names like Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and Franklin --and we honor their courage and vision. We are grateful that our Founders pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to create an independent America. And we are thankful that this Nation under God is still free, independent, and the best hope of mankind.

America is a place of freedom and opportunity. We are caring toward neighbors in need and generous to the sick and struggling. We are a strong, decent, and good-hearted country. All of us are blessed to be citizens of the United States and are proud to call America our home.

This Fourth of July weekend, we think of the men and women who are defending our freedom as members of the United States military. In Afghanistan, Iraq, and elsewhere, they are fighting the terrorists who threaten America and the civilized world. Our Nation honors these brave men and women, and their families, for their service and sacrifice.

Laura and I send our best wishes to all Americans for a safe and happy Independence Day. May God continue to bless the United States of America.

GEORGE BUSH
