Let Freedom Ring

Posted by Beth Hartman

Saturday, July 4th, 2015 will make 239 Years since the Declaration of Independence has been signed, declaring the United States of America a free country. One on the main reason HeartRateMonitorsUSA loves this holiday is what it represents. This is what draws many people to the United States.

While going into the holiday weekend, remember that many people battled in the Revolutionary War that awards us the many freedoms we are allowed to have today. It is this reason we stand behind and support Americans, even if we do not agree with their decisions. Recently we had a dialogue on one of our social media sites because we showed support of marriage equality. While we never specifically stated whether we agreed or even disagreed with LGBT Marriage, we will always support the right for basic human freedoms.

While it was argued to us that we should not take a stand on social issues, we feel a bit different. We feel our brothers and sisters would like to know what we think, how we feel, and where we stand on issues that are important to them. We also feel that staying silent on many issues could leave many feeling like they’re alone. According to an article published in The Guardian, we’re not the only people who feel this way. It seems 2015 is the year for Brands to take a stand. After all, the old saying is “Stand for nothing, or fall for anything.”

While we support marriage equality, we also support our troops, free speech, the right to bear arms, your right to be healthy, and even your right to be unhealthy. However, we will not support your decision to be unhealthy, so browse our Fitness Monitors, and treat yourself to the right to be physically fit. While we understand that many people will not agree with our position, we hope that many others find it in their hearts to embrace the diversity that USA has to offer. It is because of freedom that we have such diversity.

When going into the 4th of July, look at your family and friends and see how different everyone is. Really pay attention to what makes everyone an individual. Now take into consideration that America has approximately 318.9 Million free individuals. We’re all going to be different in many ways, but that’s what makes us unique as a country. Let’s love one another, support each other, and have a Happy and Safe 4th of July!
