We Hold These Truths


 
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.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed
 
These words are as true today, as they were July 4, 1776
Happy birthday to the United States of America

Wishing you a VERY happy 4th and may we continue to appreciate the freedoms we have and to fight to keep them.

Beautiful words. Sometimes government likes to pretend "they" gave us those rights, and thus could take them away. So not true, they are given to all by our Creator. Have a fun filled Fourth dear Buttercup.

Dear Carol, personally, I think that many in Washington, D. Cl. have forgotten that part about "the consent of the governed." Peace.
