Found this unattributed quote on the 'net and thought it worth sharing. Have a safe, healthy and enjoyable 4th everyone.
With our Declaration of Independence in 1776, the world changed in a way it had never before seen. This great experiment was launched with these resounding words: “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.”
As you wave the American flag, attend a parade or fireworks display, or gather with family or friends to chow down and party up while sporting red-white-and-blue colors, take a quiet moment to thank those who dreamed of a better life way back when.
