July 4, 2014 marks the 238th anniversary of the United States. Historians have long disagreed whether the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, even though Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin all later wrote that they had signed it on that day.

The date of the signing doesn’t really matter.  The importance of the day is that thirteen colonies resisted the greatest power on Earth in their Declaration of Independence.  Gratefully, that spirit of liberty and absolute dedication to freedom is still celebrated 238 years later.

The Thoro Packaging team is grateful for our freedom; a freedom that allows us to continue living in this great country, serve our customers and manufacture right here in the United States.

We hope that this 4th of July is better than your last and one that reminds you to never settle for average. Be joyful, be 4th of July Image Twosafe, and remember to thank the service men and women that have fought for our freedom. Happy Independence Day!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” – Ronald Reagan
