I believe the Founding Fathers of the United States of America were divinely inspired. The Declaration of Independence, signed on July 4, 1776, was just the beginning of the move toward independence. Then came the battles -- more than a dozen years' worth of battles -- to obtain freedom, and more battles to maintain it. Thank goodness for men and women who were strong and brave, who were willing to stand for their ideals and to die for them, if necessary. Thanks to those who continue to work and serve to maintain our liberties. I am ever grateful.
As we celebrate this Independence Day let us remember how our freedoms were obtained and how they continue to be maintained.
Happy Birthday, America! Happy Independence Day, fellow Americans.
