INDEPENDENCE DAY

By
Real Estate Agent with KW Evolution - Topsfield, MA 92593-B

 

Many years ago in 1776, 56 men agreed on a document titled;

"DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE".

The average age of these men was 44 yrs. Twelve (12) of them were 35 years of age or younger. When they signed they knew they had just signed their own death warrant

Because of these courageous men a country was formed. Because there are men and women of all generations that have worked & given their lives to keep our nation free we are still able to partake in freedom and the celebration of it. Although there are those who, throughout our history, have advocated against the American experiment we will continue to stand firm in our resolution to combat those who would do us harm (internal & external).

We are not perfect. Yet, we are improving. We cannot judge life in those days by life in these days. We are have been evolving as a nation and a people.

We are ALL Americans and we are identified by our founding documents and our National Flag. We are bound by these documents and the sacrifices of other noble men and women. We have a responsibility to them and to our progeny. We ARE NOT hyphenated Americans, as many would have us believe! We are indivisible. We are Americans. It's time to remember who we are! One people, One nation, under God, while acknowledging liberty and justice for All!

Kathy Streib It's amazing how many do not know what it takes to be free. My father's side of the family came here in 1920. They came to America to become Americans and partake in the opportunities America offered all without abandoning their British heritage. We ARE bound by their sacrifices.

The government derives its authority from the governed, e.g We The People. People have forgotten that or have not been taught that.

Good Morning Nina Hollander, Broker 

If we don't learn from history & throw out the bad while keeping the good and diligently work to maintain freedom for ALL while maintaining the Rule of Law then we are doomed for failure

Thank you for your response Grant Schneider 

We can never take our eyes off the ball, as We the People have done. Freedom has a price tag and a responsibility.
