Our alarm clocks buzz. We go to work. We express our opinions and communicate with colleagues. We research new ideas, freely capitalizing on our education. We exercise this routine until it becomes commonplace and increasingly easier for us to take for granted.
At Angel Armor, we thrive with open access to information, live to innovate and are inspired by our contribution to Business. As the celebration of freedom approaches, we’re reflecting on how important it is for all American-made businesses to acknowledge how lucky we are to work in a nation that values our minds, listens to our opinions and encourages our work ethic.
Thomas Friedman said it best:
“America is the greatest engine of innovation that has ever existed, and it can’t be duplicated anytime soon, because it is the product of a multitude of factors: extreme freedom of thought, an emphasis on independent thinking, a steady immigration of new minds, a risk-taking culture with no stigma attached to trying and failing, a non-corrupt bureaucracy and financial markets and a venture capital system that are unrivaled at taking new ideas and turning them into global products.”
As we kick off Fourth of July weekend, join us in recognizing that we live in a country where many have, and continue to, put their lives on the line to make our vision of freedom, equality and justice a reality. And rather than asking what this country owes us, let’s remind ourselves that this great country gave us a chance — an opportunity to prosper.
God bless the Land of the Free:
Happy Fourth of July,
