Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike understands the frustrations so many Americans are feeling during the COVID-19 challenge particularly around restricted movement and other inconveniences. He takes a look at the history of the Independence holiday along with the difference between rights and privileges.
Auburn Hills, MI — July 15, 2020— Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy, published a new article on the company website entitled, “And The Rocket’s Red Glare, The Bombs Bursting In Air...” in which Mr. Boike pays tribute to the continued growth of America as a nation as people prepare to celebrate Independence Day during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As Boike points out, “You may not be huddled up with thousands of other Americans this year to watch the annual display of fireworks.” He goes on to say, “You might be watching from your car or from the rooftop of your home or office building. Wherever you watch, if there are actually any displays in your area this year at all, you will likely be mandated to be at least a safe 6-foot distance from strangers, and of course, everyone will be wearing masks if they are willing to show respect for others safety.”
“We are living in an historic time,” says Boike adding, “and we feel it more keenly when our beloved traditions are messed with. On July 4th, we are accustomed to celebrating our country’s independence from English rule.” He emphasizes, “We typically lump our individual freedoms in there too. And, we have so many individual freedoms.”
Boike states, “We Americans have the freedom to practice any religion we choose. We are free to travel around the country as we choose. We are free to work, save our money, invest our money in ways that we choose.” He adds, “Life is truly good and has only been getting better since we broke away from England and the Queen!”
“But,” says Boike, “now that we are facing a pandemic that is spreading rapidly and causing the death of millions, we are being asked to take some precautions for the safety of all. Some people are not keen on adapting to the minor inconveniences and discomforts. It seems that some people would rather die than see how this is going to play out.”
