Tomorrow will be the Fourth of July. It is celebrated across the United States of America as Independence Day. July 4th, 1776 saw the Declaration of Independence signed in Philadelphia, announcing to Great Britain and the world that America was a free and independent country.
The events of two hundred and thirty eight years ago don’t usually seem that important in modern life. Particularly events that mostly take place in a musty hall full of politicians on a piece of parchment filled with calligraphy.
Here in the States we use this day as a wonderful excuse to grill meat, set off fireworks, and enjoy an icy cold beverage with our friends and families. It is a holiday designed for Americans by Americans. Plus, it a day out of the office!
But it is occasionally important to remember the factors that led to this national holiday. It was in defense of liberty that the American Colonies decided it was time to govern themselves. One can only take so many abuses of power before it becomes imperative that those abuses be stopped.
We celebrate the 4th of July because there were men and women in the 1770’s that wanted us to be able to celebrate. That’s really something quite special.
Ordinarily this space would be reserved for highlighting the quality of services that Prosoft Nearshore offers. Explanations of how great our partners in Costa Rica are, the advantages of software development outsourcing to Central America instead of Asia, the stability of our partners and their technical acumen in c++, ruby, java, etc. We are proud of the agile services we provide. And we believe that what we are doing is valuable. Normally all of those facts would be explained here in detail.
But not today.
We at Prosoft Nearshore are proud to be an American company. And today we will choose to wish you all a very Happy Independence Day and leave it at that.
