Happy early Independence Day everyone! I'm going off with some relatives Thursday and Friday, so I had to post this now.
And now! A toast! To the rivalry that helped create one of the greatest nations in the world! Much love to Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton! And of course to all our Founding Fathers! They never gave up on the People, and defended our rights even when faced with the noose.
"It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. ... 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 tryumph in that Days Transaction, even altho We should rue it, which I trust in God We shall not." -John Adams
