“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”
Declaration of Independence
As you enjoy that hot dog or hamburger, drink a beer and sit back waiting for the fireworks to beginning; take a minute to appreciate the freedom you have and where it all began.
243 years ago, a group of men decided enough was enough. They wanted the freedom to form a government of the people, by the people and for the people.
As Americans we sometimes forget that not all humans have the same fundamental rights we are born with.
Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Count your blessings that today, you are free from tyranny and oppression and not locked in cage or held in chains because others think your life has less value than theirs.
Happy Independence Day!
