We here at McKeown’s Heating and Air Services wish all of you a Happy Independence Day. Though this has been a rough year for all of us with the coronavirus (COVID-19) affecting so many facets of our lives from getting sick, losing loved ones, effecting our jobs, our kids and our everyday lifestyle. Also the attacks on our civil liberties of those who are trying to squash our freedom of speech, our freedom of choice to those who are trying to destroy the very history on which this country was founded. We urge all of you to stand up for your God given rights and the rights granted to all of us Americans under the U.S. of America Constitution for which so many Americans have fought and died for on this Independence Day and beyond. We are all Americans and every American life matters as does the freedoms that we all hold so dear. This Nation is built on WE the PEOPLE! May God bless you and may God Bless these U.S. of America.
