The Declaration of Independence on Liberty

While it's wonderful to shoot fireworks on the Fourth of July, it is better to remember that it is Independence Day, and why we are celebrating our God given Natural Rights of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

An Animated John Adams on Independence

"You will think me transported with enthusiasm; but I am not. I am well aware of the toil, and blood, and treasure, that it will cost us to maintain this declaration, and support and defend these states. Yet, through all the gloom, I can see the rays of light and glory; I can see that the end is more than worth all the means, and that posterity will triumph, although you and I may rue, which I hope we shall not."
 ~ John Adams' letter to  his wife Abigail July 3, 1776
