Independence Day 2019

On this, our nation's Celebration of Independence, I invite you to read about its history.

Upon the signing of our Declaration of Independence, John Adams wrote to his wife, Abigail, that the 4th of July “ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.”

He added, “You will think me transported with Enthusiasm, but I am not. I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. And that Posterity will triumph in that Days Transaction, even although We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not.”

On this, our nation’s Celebration of Independence, I invite you to read about the history of Independence Day and the foundational Unalienable Rights of Man.

For a more complete context, read “The Patriot’s Primer on American Liberty.” Note that you can purchase these Liberty Primer Pocket Guides in bulk for distribution to schools, organizations, etc.

Reflecting on the American Revolution in 1818, John Adams observed, “But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations. … This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.”

And thus it has remained “in the minds and hearts” of American Patriots to this day.

“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…”

Fellow Patriots, for inspiration I encourage you to take a moment to consider the vast greatness of our nation and people. Enjoy watching “My Beautiful America” by fellow Tennessean Charlie Daniels, or if you prefer, read the words. For additional perspective on our inheritance and legacy of Liberty, view “We still hold these truths.”
