It’s been 236 years since a courageous group of men lined up behind a desk to sign a document- a document that would immediately threaten their lives and fortunes, but more importantly, would change the course of world history. These heroic signers announced to the world with the Declaration of Independence, that these thirteen small colonies- outposts of the British Empire- were declaring themselves to be a free and independent nation.
If you are planning on going swimming, golfing, barbecuing or whatever, go ahead and enjoy it! But please don’t enjoy it without thinking of the vision of these signers and the courage that enabled them to take all the risks of launching one of the greatest nations in human history.
God Bless America!
