Cheers DG Family!
I'm no historian, in fact it would not be just or correct that I attempt to teach anything of our country, but I AM a citizen of this great Country and we ARE free to choose!
In celebration of our Country's birthday I read the Declaration of Independence. I'm not sure what our Founding Fathers would say to us today, but these words are for us to live by, not just as States, but as individuals:
"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."
In gratitude to the 56 dedicated men who gave us these freedoms, we have not only the right, but we have a responsibility to them to exercise those rights. If not today, then when?
Declare your Independence from whatever, whomever is holding you back from the truth of who you are, who you intend to be, who you choose to be. If it is you, then stand up and take hold of yourself. If it another person, declare and pursue your choice. If circumstances, then take the knowledge you have, find out what you do not know, but take action here and now. There will be no right time, there will be no better time, there is no need to know more before you begin because by beginning you will be free!
Happy 4th of July All!
PS I did learn something; the first Independence Day was celebrated on July 8th. In 1941, Congress declared 4th of July a federal legal holiday. It is one of the few federal holidays that has not been moved to the nearest Friday or Monday.
