When in the course of human events it becomes necessary …

“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 requires 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.”

-The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America, July 4, 1776

 

May the words of our nation’s independence declaration in 1776 grow within our hearts so to achieve the truths to which it proclaims. For “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people chosen as his inheritance.” (Psalm 33:12)
Amen
