A mere 235 years ago a band of rebels got together and formed a nation.
That nation became the greatest country in the world.
I hold that truth to be self-evident.
Rebels posing after signing the Declaration of Independence:
Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin
When thinking about 1776 and all the events it inspired, I can't help but raise my fist in triumph. There was a declaration, there was a war, there was a country. And bam! We're here.
This 4th of July, let's shake our first in triumph.
Happy burrday, America.
I love you too much.
