“Hello. This is Senator Chris Larson. This Monday, July 4th marks the 240th anniversary of our nation's Declaration of Independence. It is a day that many of us spend enjoying parades, ceremonies, and fireworks with our family, friends, and neighbors.
 
“But most importantly, Independence Day is a time to remember not just those who fought to create this bold country we call home but also to recognize those who have served since then to protect our freedom, those who have made advances in equal opportunity for all, and those who chip in everyday to make our country what it is today.
 
“As we celebrate our evolving democracy and the hard work that has made our country a safe and welcoming place for all, we, as a nation of immigrants, should commit to our continued effort for a more equal, just society that allows all of our neighbors an opportunity to achieve the American dream.
 
“Thank you for listening, and I hope that you have a safe and enjoyable Independence Day!"
