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 🙂
