Happy Birthday, America!

Independence Day is often called the birth of our country. Built on the blood and ideals of martyrs, heroes, statesmen and idealists, our great country was formed with some novel and far-reaching ideals, including that all men are created equal, and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

As we in America celebrate the 233rd anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, I hope we remember the birth-pangs our forefathers went through to birth this great nation. May we be found worthy of living in it, enjoying its freedoms, and continuing it to the next generation.
