HAPPY 4TH OF JULY … INDEPENDENCE DAY
As we celebrate America’s birthday today, please do not ever forget that independence and freedom are never free. The sacrifice of bravery of so many some 231 years earlier and today are what maintain our Independence. Those words scribed in The Declaration of Independence ring just as powerful today as they did in 1776.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–
GOD BLESS AMERICA
