Happy Fourth of July! This special holiday evokes the iconic vision of what summertime in America is all about: vacations, camping, reading books on the beach and spending time outdoors with friends and family. I hope you are all taking time out of your busy work schedule to enjoy this time of year. With the cyclical nature of our work, the summer presents the best opportunity for rest and relaxation.
Everywhere you look today, the stars and stripes are proudly waving throughout our neighborhoods, symbolic of the patriotic pride that has been instilled in our country since 1776; a reminder of the great place we are all fortunate enough to live in. In light of all of the threats around the world which affect so many abroad and at home – and I am still stunned by what our Orlando team experienced recently, hitting so close to home – we continue to stand together as one.
