Thanks to Facebook and Internet, one can be a part of the 4th July celebration even if they are not in the US and are feeling nostalgic. In an interesting initiative by Generation Opportunity (GO), which is one of the largest groups that mobilizes nation educating among teenagers, anyone can visit their Facebook page called 'Being American by GO' or their official website, /generationopportunity.org/independence-day/ and reaffim their faith in their declaration of Independence with a virtual signing of the declaration. This is a nice and interesting way to ingrain in the minds of the people the importance of the principles written in the declaration of Independence of America.
