Happy Independence Day!
572. celebrating Independence Day, remembering my country's birth, watching fireworks with friends this evening
573. documents penned for my country: Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights, Amendments guaranteeing freedom for all
574. all who serve and sacrifice to ensure freedoms
575. words penned over two hundred years ago in a city not far from my home..."We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
...and so it continues...
