The Declaration of Independence
Well it is Independence Day...the 4th of July...the ultimate American Holiday. Once again we celebrate the anniversary of the signing of The Declaration Of Independence. It is easy in this day and age to forget WHY we are celebrating some of these holidays.
My motivation for writing this short post, in addition to wanting to acknowledge the day itself is also to encourage all who read this post to click on the link above and read about this amazing document. Plus read the document itself...it is virtually a work of art...poetry for a new country and a blue-print for the birth of a Nation.
It is an incredible document and at the risk of sounding overly sentimental and contrite...one that truly does make me feel proud to be an American.
