Gratitude for Liberty

By Sean Reyes
Utah Attorney General

As we celebrate Independence Day, I am profoundly grateful for those who sacrificed so much to bring to life this improbable nation. Our forefathers walked a precarious path, compelled by the conviction that all men are created equal and premised upon the revolutionary notion that liberties are granted to man not by despots, but by Divinity. These are the same liberties and opportunities we enjoy today. 

Ronald Reagan said, “Freedom is one of the deepest and noblest aspirations of the human spirit.” I wholeheartedly agree and encourage you to join me in remembering the humble roots of this great land, and working to protect the constitutional principles that make it great.
