I would like to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July. I also ask that as you enjoy your time with family and friends today, you remember it is because of the blood, sweat and tears of a soldier that you enjoy that freedom.

Freedom is never free.

Do not take it for granted and be grateful for the sacrifice a soldier and their family have made so that we can all stay free.

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

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.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

    Be sure to thank a National Guard soldier too. The militia’s of yore are our National Guard today. They’ve done some pretty badass things over the course of our nation’s history.

      I know! I LOVED Schoolhouse Rock growing up. I know all the songs by heart. 😀

      There is a ton of videos from that show on YouTube. Do you remember “I am a bill. I am only a bill and I’m sitting here on Capitol Hill…”? 😛
