On this, the anniversary of our country's birth, I took a few moments to actually read the Declaration of Independence. It's a fascinating document and well worth taking 10 minutes to study. I share it with you here.
233 years ago, our forefathers took an action that changed our world. It was a monumental task, one that cost about 25,000 lives (interesting to note that only about 8000 were from battle wounds while the rest died from disease) and a struggle that lasted 8 years.
Perhaps, after reading this amazing manifesto, you'll think about the threats that currently exist to your own independence? What exists in your world that needs to be changed? What actions are you willing to take?
What's your "declaration?"
