The most important sentence ever written in this country
July 4, 2022 PLYMOUTH VOICE.
As Americans celebrate Independence Day with parades and fireworks, we should recognize what makes our country special. America is great because of the founding ideals and fundamental freedoms first articulated in our Declaration of Independence and later guaranteed by our Constitution and Bill of Rights. This Fourth of July marks 246 years since the Founding Fathers declared three self-evident truths adopted by Congress on July, 4, 1776.
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 most important sentence ever written in this county acclaims we are all created equal; that God has endowed us with unalienable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and that government derives its powers from the consent of the governed.
The founding generation fought to secure these principles and successive generations have bled to defend them.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” – Ronald Regan
Go forward in peace and tranquility and thank you, our loyal readers and followers.
Happy July 4th
