from U.S. Representative Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA 05) on Facebook:
243 years ago today, our nation was founded right here in Pennsylvania.
I want to wish everyone in my PA community and across this country a safe and happy 4th of July!
Today, we celebrate America; we remember those who gave so much so we could live freely; we reflect on the values we want to lead with. Serving my PA community in Congress is the honor & privilege of a lifetime.
I got to speak today and honor Vietnam veterans as well as the 22 Revolutionary Soldiers who lost their lives here in East Vincent. I thank all who have served this country, who have bravely stood for our freedoms here and around the world.
And for the PA pet-owners out there, please remember to keep your animal friends safe today! Here’s some helpful info.
