Pride means a lot of things to a lot of different people. It can be pride in your career, pride in your family or, especially around this time of year, pride in your country. With the Fourth of July coming up, it's important to take a moment and think about what you stand for. How do you let other people know the principles you take with you every day? It's easy to just grill out by the lake with a beer and enjoy the fireworks on Independence Day. It takes a conscious effort to truly appreciate just how special our independence is. If it wasn't for the founding fathers fighting for the rights of the common man and civil rights leaders campaigning for equality we might not have the opportunities we all enjoy.
The Ride with Pride design itself was inspired by both, a love of country and a love of the trucks that keep that country moving. The Peterbilt 379 on the back is as recognizable to an American as the bald eagle flying above it. To many, a picture of American diesel is the most patriotic display you can put on a T-Shirt. At Hammer Lane, we take pride in bringing the things we love to life and big trucks and a beautiful flag are at the top of the list. The charcoal colored background and bright red truck seek to bring the flag to life and inspire another generation of folks who love their country. If you love the design, or have some awesome July 4th photos you want to share, make sure to get it to us on social media with the #HammerLane hashtag!
