Independence Day!

Here in the US we celebrate our independence from Britain on July 4th annually. The ideals of our forefathers may be lost on today's generation, but hopefully this is not the case. America’s birth was painful and bloody, but a necessary step in the evolution of not only government, but also humanity. Finally after millennia of dictatorships, martial law, and tyrants, a fragile thought burst into existence - that a society could prosper and govern itself using higher standards than the whims of its rulers. A belief that the human race was at last ready to be governed by laws, and a set of principles, written for people “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights” (Declaration of Independence) was birthed on this day in 1776. So celebrate our Independence Day!
