We heart America!

I’ve always loved Independence Day.  It’s a celebration with no expectations, like gifts or cards or flowers. Just folks getting together to drink, eat and watch fireworks. Now that’s what I call a holiday!

Here’s a little tidbit about the Declaration of Independence.

The Declaration of Independence is the birth certificate of the United States of America. It declared our commitment to freedom and guaranteed our basic rights (though… we still need more!).  Every freedom we have as Americans comes from the Declaration of Independence (Hello…? Gay rights anyone?). It is the foundation for our other precious documents, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Emancipation Proclamation. Without the D of I, our country would not be “the land of the free” as we know it today. Let freedom ring, y’all!
