Other than Christmas, the one holiday I make a point to send out an e-mail just to say hello, or update my blog with rants like this is Independence Day.
Yes, NOT the 4th of July, Independence Day.
We are celebrating an important event in the birth of our nation. While we could argue exactly when the United States of America became a free and independent nation, it was on a declaration issued by the Continental Congress in 1776 that begins with these words:
"IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776. The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America. "
What often gets lost in this celebration of backyard picnics, and fun in the sun, is that the battle for Independence was much more that a one day event.
I've rebuilt my American Philosopher website in time for the holiday.
Check out the link below. Please share it with your friends and family today to revisit the dreams and visions of Thomas Jefferson, The Declaration of Independence, and those who influenced the birth of our nation.
