I am well aware of the toil and blood and treasure it will cost us to maintain this declaration, and support and defend these states. Yet through all the gloom I see the rays of ravishing light and glory. I can see that the end is worth all the means. This is our day of deliverance.
John Adams (1735–1826)

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.”

― Dwight D. Eisenhower

Happy Independence Day....

On Independence Day, Americans do not celebrate actual independence from Britain, which didn’t formally come until the signing of the Treaty of Paris on Sept. 3, 1783. Nor do we celebrate the start of the revolution that would make us free, which began in Massachusetts on April 19, 1775 and lasted for eight years.

What we celebrate is the act of declaring our independence; the ratification and signing of a document that was meaningless without the might of arms to make it so. What we celebrate are the ideas in the Declaration of Independence, that most remarkable piece of political writing in history, and the courage of the politicians who engaged in what was seen by the duly established authorities as treason

Today, some talk about secession and when you think about just how hard that would be, (not to mention how it turned into civil war and ultimately failure the last time) it makes you appreciate how big a deal it was to actually declare independence from England and then fight their army to establish that freedom officially. In other words, winning independence from a king was a helluva thing indeed.

Happy Birthday America.

There, I guess King George will be able to read that.

On signing the American Declaration of Independence.

In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.
~Franklin D. Roosevelt

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.
~Abraham Lincoln

Happy Birthday, America!!
