Happy Independence Day

In remembrance of this day back in 1776 I offer a few moving excerpts from the beginning and end of the Declaration of Independence:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable 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."

I am always impressed when I think of those who drafted and signed the Declaration of Independence. That pledge at the end of the document speaks volumes.. it seems to reflects an impassioned determination to be free. May God continue to have mercy on our country.


  1. Oh, Amen and Amen!
    So grateful for the men who fashioned our Declaration.
    I love our country...warts and all.
