Happy 4th of July

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, 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." 
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, July 4, 1776

Every 4th of July during the last few years of my father's life, he came to our home for a picnic.  And he always brought a copy of the Declaration of Independence to read aloud to all us.  And so this post is for you, Dad.  I read it to myself is good to remind ourselves about the principles this country was founded upon.
