Happy Independence Day!

Happy 4th of July!  The 4th of July commemorates our adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The Declaration of Independence said that Americans were no longer under British rule. Instead, the thirteen British colonies came together to become our own country.

I know it seems that we live in a country of over stimulation and unpopularity, but it is still a great country. Not by those who choose to discriminate against us, but by the people who want and know how awesome America is. There is a lot wrong with us right now, but we are still here united and determined to make this country a great one.

One of the most famous passages of the Declaration of Independence is â€œWe hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

Remember that we are all created equally. We all have rights. We give government power. We are one. Happy 4th of July America!

  1. I don’t know…I used to be big into celebrating Independence Day, but these days I have my misgivings. It’s difficult for me to celebrate a supposed “Day of Freedom” when it seems like large swaths of the population have never had that freedom…not in 1776, not in 1876, not in 1976, not today. My apologies for being a bit of a debbie downer, but maybe you’ll understand where I’m coming from. (And people still have the right to celebrate today…I’m just explaining why I have trouble sharing those sentiments.)

    1. I totally understand. I just responded to another blogger it was the first step in America defining it’s independence and then a slippery slope into other people defining our rights in this country. The thing about our country is that we have the right to criticize how she and her inhabitants behave. We’re not behaving very well right now. Thank you so much for commenting.

    1. LOL. Yep, in the history books it is. Even though we (blacks) weren’t free, it still is the first step in America’s freedom and thus America creating the rules and regulations that held us back for years. But, I’m also a history buff. Happy 4th to you as well.
