“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….”
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
These lines were pivotal elements in the formation of our country. What determination, courage, and foresight our founding fathers must have had to take upon the task of giving us the opportunity to be such a unique country.
I would like to take this moment to say thank you to all Americans for giving someone like me the opportunity to become an active and proud citizen of this country.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
God bless the United States of America.
Happy Independence Day!!!
Your Happy Contessa
I will be back on Tuesday.
