As we prepare to celebrate this Independence Day, please take a few moments to read the document prepared on that day 246 years ago. The Declaration of Independence speaks about the injustices suffered by our founding fathers and how they were to join to overcome these injustices. Two specific phrases remind us of what binds us all together.
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.
And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
Wishing you and yours all a most enjoyable 4th of July Celebration.
