'America stands as an iconic symbol of freedom, democracy and strength'
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Today is the day we celebrate the independence of our great nation and the many freedoms we enjoy as citizens of the United States of America.
Throughout history, regardless of what challenges we may have faced, we have never allowed ourselves to lose sight of the fact that across the globe America stands as an iconic symbol of freedom, democracy and strength.
America has and always will shine as a unified nation where we can at times disagree among ourselves, but always stand together in the face of danger and freedom.
As my Dad used to say…”in America we can mess with each other, but nobody messes with us!!”
While today is reserved on the calendar as a day to celebrate our independence with family outings, parades and some fireworks, more importantly, it’s a time to remember that each and every day in our country we should stand and honor our great flag, our great heroes, and thank God that we live in these United States of America where we have the freedom to share our views, our emotions, and our beliefs!!
On behalf of the 1,700 proud men and women of our agency, we thank you for all of the incredible love and support you show us each and every day here in Brevard County, and we hope everyone has a safe and Happy Independence Day!!
– Sheriff Wayne Ivey
