Posted on July 3, 2017

MARYVILLE, TENN. – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement commemorating Independence Day this Tuesday:

“These days, we hear a lot about what's wrong with our country. Alex Haley, a great Tennessean and the author of 'Roots', lived his life by the motto: ‘Find the Good and Praise it.’ The Fourth of July is a perfect day to praise what is right with our country. Let's start with the men and women in uniform who keep us safe and protect our inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
