Yes – Freedom!
What is Freedom?
Truths that All men are created equal. That they are endowed by their Creator with unalienable Rights that amoung these are Life Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
The Valedictorian of my grand-daughters graduating class of 2016 Amsterdam said it so beautifully.
“the first assignment he remembered was “What do You want to Be?
He answered “HAPPY”
He was told He did not understand the assignment.
He said You don’t understand Me!”
Our Founding Fathers made it so we have that freedom. As well as a duty, a responsibility of All people as One to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
This gives me the courage to take up my torch of Freedom. For I too believe that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it. AND to institute new Government laying it’s foundation on such principles and organizing it’s powers in such a form as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
I Honor the privilege of Being an American of the United States of America!
Being an American means I have many freedoms seen in very few places on Our Planet-Mother Earth. We have a philosophy of We Are One “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…”, “Right of the People”, we are those People!
So today I take up my torch of Freedom of Life Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. And I am sooooo grateful I don’t have to have a musket to claim my Right!
Yes – Happiness!
