Happy Independence Day!

Signing the Declaration of Independence



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.


Believe it or not I think about our founding fathers a lot. Without them this country may still be a part of the British Empire. They were traitors to the crown, and thank God for that! On July 4th, 1776, we declared our independence from the empire, but the revolution really started in 1775 and took until 1783 to wrap up, eight HARD years to become and independent nation. Don't forget that.
