Happy 4th of July!

It was on this date 235 years ago that a group of rebels to their King put forth to the population of the 13 colonies (And to the world.) the reasons they were in revolt. They wrote a declaration putting forth their grievances and telling their displeasure with their King (George III) and His Government.

With an eloquence of words, Thomas Jefferson's "Declaration of Independence" speaks as loud today as it did in 1776. Speaks not only to Americans, but to every person who loves freedom:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator wit certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Words to inspire, to give hope of freedom around the world.

On this Independence Day, take time to remember the words of Jefferson and the Freedoms we enjoy.
