                                    LIFE, LIBERTY & THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

Barbara’s Blog:                                                

We currently live in a country divided by many issues, but we tend to forget how this country was founded on the many freedoms that we still enjoy today.  The Representatives of the 13 colonies of the United States of America met to appeal to the Supreme Judge of the world that they should be free and independent states, able to make their own decisions over war, peace and commerce, and any other acts which independent states have the rights to do.

In Congress on July 4, 1776, the unanimous “Declaration of Independence” was signed and published absolving all Allegiance to the British Crown, and stating that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain was totally dissolved. 

“When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

This was just the beginning of our beautiful United States of America, and those original representatives of 13 states had a firm belief that “In God We Trust” and “for the support of this Declaration, we have a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence.”

As a country, we continue to be blessed and as we pray for future guidance, may “God Bless America!”
