It’s hard to believe that we are halfway through the year. The sun is blazing and in many areas of the country we are hitting peak temperatures, but if you’re like us, you have not had much of a “summer vacation” yet. Things at Pursuant rarely slow down and right now is no exception. That’s one reason we are grateful for the built-in “slow down” days like national holidays to take pause and spend time with our families.

This holiday weekend we’re going to make an extra effort to be present where we are, to slowly step away from our inboxes, and even take a few moments to reflect on why we celebrate Independence Day.

It feels like our political climate is more polarizing than ever, but 4th of July is a reminder that our similarities are bigger than our differences. We value freedom. We value free speech. We value life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and we value the sacrifices that generations have made on and off the battlefield to ensure that every person in this country has those things.

We hope you take some time over the long weekend to reflect on the sacrifices made, the bravery exhibited, and the freedom we have that certainly came at a cost.

Happy Independence Day from all of us at Pursuant.
