We are free…

235 years ago it was codified that we are free. While some revere our founding fathers, others look at them with disdain. The Declaration of Independence recognized the freedom of mankind. It was the thought and intent of our fathers. Like anytime we discover truth, it takes time to realize its full implications. We had slavery but as the country grew we moved beyond that. We had workers exploited, but we overcame that as well. We fought wars to relieve others from tyranny, unheard of in human history.

235 years ago we did not claim to be a perfect nation, only that we are free. America is down to Earth and at times arrogant, but the ideals she stands for are to be treasured and promoted. With all our ideals and all our faults, we are a blessed nation.

Happy Birthday America!
