Independence Day 2011

235 years ago today, the Declaration of Independence was signed and published. A declaration of revolution, against the crown.  The beginning of a long war on our shores, and the birth of this Republic.

Celebrate, the freedoms that our ancestors have won and protected for so many years. Give a thought to which of those freedoms are most valuable to you. Take the time to think about the reasons (they are listed in the video below) that the founders of this Republic found it necessary to throw off the tyranny of King George.

Today is a day of celebration. Enjoy the day, and take a few minutes to reflect on why we can enjoy the day.

Oh, and Old Glory better be flying nearby.
