July 4th is my favorite holiday! It is the day we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence! It is the day when the United States of America took it's first steps forward.
Did you live during this time? I did and what an interesting time it was!
Just read and feel these words deeply in your heart!
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.-
I was not and am not a politician in this lifetime or the previous lifetime. I was an observer if you will. During that time there was a lot of excitement for the birth of our nation. We get to celebrate and be grateful now for our nation and the strides it has taken to move us forward. This Declaration reminds us of what the United States stands for.
Yes everyone does not always agree with what is going on here at home, but that is what is so wonderful about the United States is we can even agree to disagree. We can state what we want and perhaps even see it through, men, women and children.
On this great and wonderful day remember to celebrate your freedoms and independence for in other countries it is not always possible for people to even have an opinion or comment. Say a prayer or send Light to your countrymen across the world who act on our behalf to keep them safe and out of harms way!
