Robert Hurt - #3046 - Fourth of July Message at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C.


Robert Hurt 4th of July Message at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. - “ Hi, I’m Robert Hurt and I’m standing at the Jefferson Memorial here in Washington, D.C. I’m very proud to represent the people of Virginia’s 5th District in the United States Congress, and I’m very proud to represent the home of one of our great founders, Thomas Jefferson. As we approach July 4th holiday, I think it’s important to remember the hard work and courage and vision of our Founding Fathers. I think it is important to remember the principles that were enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, signed July 4th, 1776, that guaranteed freedom for the people of America, but also enshrined those principles of limited government, free enterprise, and individual liberty. And our Founders signed that document, knowing full well that they were sacrificing their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. So as we celebrate the birth of this great nation, I think it’s important that we all remember the great blessings that [have] been bestowed upon us, and that we thank those who are serving in harm’s way as we speak, our troops, all across this world, who are serving so that we may live in peace. Thank you and God bless America.
