Today is the big day! Independence Day has come for Rachel and I! But the truth is, we have merely claimed our Independence, we haven’t yet finished fighting for it. The first battles have been fought but the campaign is only beginning, and we have a long way to go before we win the war.
The history of our country and our state is filled with tales of people that imagined a better life for themselves. Call it the American dream but it is the Coloradan dream too. Those settlers that stopped here on their way to California and saw the possibility of a good life and decided to stay, were hardy folks. We are hardy folks too. We will not be dissuaded, we will not be distracted or discouraged. We are pursuing our dream, come what may and it’s success or bust for us.
That’s why we choose today to be the launch date of our enterprise, why we choose it as our D-Day. Because as we celebrate the people that made our nation and our state great, we strive to emulate them and join their ranks!
I have no doubt that like our fore fathers and mothers, we will persevere in the face of hardship, and prove ourselves worthy of the legacy of the pioneers that first called themselves Coloradans and Americans.
So here’s some new product from Funky Lollipop that pays homage to the great country and the great state that we live in!
