Today is July 4, 2011.
This time of year, a lot of people in our country will probably say and/or hear versions of "Happy 4th of July!" or "how was your July 4th holiday?", etc. While most people (hopefully) recognize that today is actually the anniversary of our nations birth -- the anniversary of a date when we declared our independence from the British crown and became a sovereign nation, I'm beginning to wonder if Americans have lost touch with its real meaning. It's not just the "Fourth of July"... it's our Independence Day anniversary.
It's important to remember that.
I've always been in awe of the actual parchment first drafted by Thomas Jefferson and some of America's other patriarchs. There's a depth to its beauty that goes beyond the timeless words contained in it... for me, it's inspiring and humbling to think of the courageous men who were willing to sign this document. They were pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to help start the greatest country this world had ever known.
Today, not many people seem to think or care about Divine Providence, but our founders certainly did. The United States of America was founded on the belief that people are "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." And based on these truths, our framework of government was carefully designed so that the governments power to intrude into our personal lives would be very limited.
What resulted was the United States of America, the most exceptional country in the history of the world.
Happy 235th birthday, America!
