Remembering What It Means To Be American

StrategyDriven Fourth of July - Remembering What It Means To Be American
“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.”
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 unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America. In that moment, the American republic was born.

Freedom is not without cost. Indeed, to support their assertion of freedom from the British Crown, the American Founders solemnly pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. For them, the Declaration was a death warrant. And each and every day since declaring independence, Americans have sacrificed both blood and treasure to secure the blessings of liberty for themselves, their children, and their fellow citizens within the global community. To date, 2,757,196 Americans have made the ultimate sacrifice in our ongoing struggle for freedom.

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 whose service has and continues to provide that freedom to us. As you celebrate our nation’s birth today, join us and tens of thousands of other Americans in reading The Declaration of Independence.

Happy Birthday, America! With best wishes for many more to come.

All the Best,
Nathan Ives, StrategyDriven Principal
