As we celebrate the 240th birthday of our country, let us gratefully remember the great souls who sacrificed their lives to gain our independence. As we are proud of our achievements and legacy of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as a nation, let us also be mindful of the challenges of inequality, religious freedom and national unity. Liberty, justice and peace are a dream for millions. As responsible citizens, "we shall not think of what the country can do for us but what we can do for the country" says John F. Kennedy. As a prominent nation, America has a significant role to play in order to bring peace, justice and freedom within and beyond the borders continuing the legacy of the founding fathers.
