Something to Think About

Consider this during the course of your celebrations today:

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...

Read it all here.

Remember, Independence Day is about much more than beer and barbecue. In fact, if these brave men long ago had not taken a stand against tyranny, America would not exist as we know it today. They risked it all so that we could have freedom and be able to celebrate it!

Remember this today and enjoy the freedoms that began with this declaration on July 4, 1776.
