Our American forefathers blazed a trail of dare and courage. Who would have contested the throne of England in those days?
To my fellow American citizens, celebrate this day with pride. Teach your children the value of responsible freedom because that’s what our country was founded on.
Responsible. Not fanatical, nor self-serving. Not out of rage or absent of thought. Freedom comes with responsibility to do the right and honorable and just thing. It is good to stand up for yourself, for your family and for your nation. But we must always be sure of the stand we’re taking. We must heed wisdom.
“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”. -The Declaration of Independence
Enjoy your day!
