Happy Fourth of July everyone! When determining the appropriate blog post to publish for this holiday I must say that our team was “Bursting with Ideas” ! Lots of brainstorming occurred and high powered “boom generating” ideas arose. But as the smoke cleared one concept remained sparkling longer than the rest. Independence Day is such a monumental holiday. It paved the way for a country founded by freedom of thought, speech and beliefs.
