Independence Day, 2012

 “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just.”

~ Thomas Jefferson

This year in particular, Independence Day is the perfect time to reflect upon our history and to remember how many brave souls have defended our freedoms throughout the past 236 years.

And, since it's rarely taught in the classroom anymore, read the Declaration of Independence in honor of Independence Day. The modern relevance of the charges by the 13 original colonies against the British king are striking and alarming.

We in the United States today stand at a crossroads. I can only pray to the "Creator...Nature's God...divine Providence...Supreme Judge" named in our Declaration of Independence that we, as one nation under God, choose the right road going forward.
