read or listen to the Declaration of Independence (below). Pay attention to its words. See how far we have come as a nation, or rather, how far we have reverted back to the ways of those we once rebelled against.
Let us remember that we are "endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights" for which we must continue to fight. May we continue our struggle and strive to make each July 4th more free and more happy than the last.
