As is the tradition of the AltWorld Blog I wish you all a happy and safe 4th of July, today is Independence Day here in the United States of America; a day of common purpose and freedom. Continue reading
This will be my eleventh Fourth of July here in the USA, this is a Holiday that is more than just an excuse to be with friends and family, it is day to remember your freedoms. A day to remember those that protect your freedoms and a day to remember to never give it away for the sake of security. But you don’t need a lecture from an Englishman about your rights about your freedoms… Just take a look at your Declaration of Independence and these opening words…
“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.”
You really don’t know how lucky you are… Never forget this and have a Happy and Safe July 4th 🙂
You all have a safe, and happy Independence day and take a moment from this day to remember all those from American to the Allies who give their lives so you can live free. Freedom isn’t free and should be cherished by all those who embrace it, never given away freely, never lost to those who will take your freedoms by wrapping them up in a flag of security. I urge you all to live life, live free and remember why the United States of America is an amazing country that the Founding Fathers envisioned it to be. Be safe, be happy and have a great July 4th.
Now some last words from Cap after the jump.
