“The Declaration of Independence cemented that we are all endowed by our creator with inalienable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

“We owe all our founders, and the men and women who have fought to preserve our nation over the last 248 years, a great deal of thanks.

“I hope all West Virginians and your loved ones take the time to celebrate our great country, and all the blessings we enjoy this 4th of July.”
