On July 4, 1776, 244 years ago, after Congress voted for a complete separation from Great Britain, our Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence declaring these beautiful self-evident truths: “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.”
Today, we continue to be the longest on-going Constitutional Republic in the history of the world.
And that is no accident. John Adams said it best as he meditated on what they had done. He said this day “ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to Almighty God.”
From Penny Nance and the staff at Concerned Women for America, we wish you a Happy Independence Day!
