I hope you all are enjoying a very happy and safe Independence Day and that maybe even some few of my readers have taken at least a few minutes today to think of the significance of this day both in terms of our history and as to what it means to us today in current times.
If you have not given the 4th much thought today, other than what shorts to wear, what to BB Q and what to drink maybe you can spare a few minutes to go here to read the words that defined the reasons behind the creation of a new form of government like the world had never seen before and that explained, in essence, why it was worth fighting to create it.

They who signed that document and those who fought under them and along side them in the war to follow were visionaries; yet, if they somehow got to see and live in the United States of America as it is today or at least to see how some utterly disrespect our country under the guise of the freedoms won way back then - I think they would revolt all over again.
Yet, there is no other country in the world where I would choose to live and if it comes down to it, I will fight for the nation they created in the hope of preserving the rights and liberties some of them and the others, the framers of our Constitution, formulated as the basis of law of our great nation.
All the best,
