My Cat tells you Happy Fourth of July 2018 Enjoy. Everybody have a great day!


A little bit of history before fun:

cute kitten and the usa flag

This holiday — also known as Independence Day — commemorates the fact that in 1776, the Continental Congress, representing the 13 colonies, approved the Declaration of Independence — the first step on the road to freedom as a sovereign nation.

It seems fitting to revisit the most famous words from the document; words that have guided us since that time:

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, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
