“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.”

Happy Independence Day, America! And while we're splashing in the pool, grilling our burgers and enjoying this day off from work, let's all take a moment to pause and reflect on how some very brave people put their lives on the line 236 years ago.
God Bless America!
