OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today released the following statement wishing Oklahomans a happy Independence Day:
“We are blessed to live in a country where freedom and liberty are still valued. Because our Founding Fathers courageously rose up to support those principles 238 years ago, we can worship freely, speak our minds and defend our families.
“This holiday, let’s not forget to keep in our thoughts and prayers those who have served and currently serve in our nation’s military. Their courage, sacrifice and service ensure our rights and liberties are passed along to future generations of Americans.
“I am wishing all Oklahomans a happy and safe Independence Day, while encouraging all of us to bear in mind the sacrifices made by those in the U.S. Armed Forces that have made this celebration possible.”
