Easy Independence Day Trifle

  On July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain and Democracy was born. Every day thousands leave their homeland to come to the “land of the free and the home of the brave” so they can begin their American Dream.

  Happy Independence Day, thanks for all who served….

God bless America!
