Today Is Independence Day In The USA

by Mike –

Thomas Jefferson had a way with words and the basic ideas presented in the Declaration of Independence are still very important today – not the part about grievances against the King of Great Britain – but this sentence below,

Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson

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.

Today is the Fourth of July – Independence Day for the USA – on this day in 1776 the Declaration of Independence was signed.

Celebrations will be held from sea to shining sea!
