“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…”
The Declaration of Independence
of the United States of America
July 4, 1776
On July 4, 1776, fifty-six individuals boldly signed what became one of the most revered statements of human rights the world has ever known, The Declaration of Independence of the United States of America. In that moment, the American republic was born.
Freedom is not without cost. Indeed, to conclude their assertion of freedom from the British Crown, the American Founders solemnly pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. And each and every day since declaring independence, brave Americans have sacrificed both blood and treasure to secure the blessings of freedom for themselves, their children, and their fellow citizens within the global community.
On this Fourth of July, the StrategyDriven family gives thanks for the freedom that allows us to share our thoughts and beliefs with you and for those who have and continue to provide that freedom.
Happy Birthday, America! With best wishes for many, many more to come.
