It is on this day that I don't speak about prepping or preparedness but simply of survival.
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. - Declaration of Independence
As this is listed as probably the best sentence ever in history, it is that sentence that spawned the survival that I am referring to today.
In 1776, there was a nice piece of parchment paper that was signed by 56 delegates which included the patriots who actually penned the document. Such men as Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams were among those to state “We the people...”. With John Hancock signing his name big enough “for the King of England to read it without his spectacles”, it is men like that which helped this country survive and become the United States of America.
I know we have issues and problems as a country as do others throughout the world. But today I step back and say, Thank You. I still love this country and wish that everything was running smoothly and that I had other reasons to gripe, but again, I wish not to think about those things today.
So enjoy the fireworks, the hot dogs, and even a cold beer or two (or more) and remember those patriots and saints that started the States and founded this as being the greatest country in the world.
God Bless America and God Bless Us All!
