As we celebrate the Fourth of July with vacation days, parties and and barbecues, let us not forget the heart and preamble of the Declaration of Independence:
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.
Let us all commit ourselves to take every action necessary to ensure that these core values are not lost in these trying times.
Have a safe Fourth!
