Independence Declared

“A free people claim their rights as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.” — Thomas Jefferson

“My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.” — Thomas Jefferson

July 4, 1776: Adoption of the Declaration of Independence, declaring independence from Great Britain.

A Nation was born.

That day 237 years ago was a day that many chose something important for them, their posterity, and the world.  We are now at a crossroads where we must also choose what is important to us. We should all read and become familiar with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States in order to fully appreciate what the Founding Fathers did for this great nation.  Government should be held to those documents and it is up to “We the people” to check our government and make sure that those divinely inspired documents never fall by the wayside.

I am an American! What pride and joy that brings.  During your July 4 celebrations this year, take some time to think about all the blessings that being an American has brought to you. I promise that there are many.
