The Fourth Of July!
Happy Independence Day, everybody!
Two hundred and forty years ago, patriots of the American Revolution banded together in Philadelphia to draft a proclamation to the entire world that men were meant to be free and equal. That proclamation, the Declaration of Independence, became a rallying cry for oppressed people worldwide, and it still shines as one of the most powerful declarations of the proper relationship between human freedom and government.
From then onward, Americans have celebrated this special day. Independence Day marks independence from tyranny, oppression, unfair taxation, and injustice.
Today, we celebrate those same ideals.
