Happy Fourth of July

The Liberty Bell, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. December 2, 2000.

” …  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. …”

Two hundred and thirty-four years ago, the United States began with a declaration and an ideal.  We need to remember both and work to bring the ideal closer to reality.

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July.
