Americana to Live By: Declaration of Independence

DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE (excerpt)
by the United States Continental Congress, July 4, 1776
“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.”

ANALYSIS

RECIPE FOR A CONSTRUCTIVE SOCIETY
The Declaration of Independence actively justifies the growth of a nation of idealists, that strive to treat its citizens more justly.  Composed as a diplomatic notice and complaint to Great Britain's King George III, the Declaration of Independence asserts that this country’s people think and intend to rule themselves better than the parent country. (Reference: www.wikipedia.org)

VALUE
This country has been built on the romance that its citizens will always have their rights, freedom and a clean way to the future.  America has always offered a place to grow, flourish and bring up the next generation with decency.  And with this longstanding precidence, all Americans expect ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ with everything they do.  It is the legal threshold American laws are based on.

STRENGTH
Our strength as Americans is that we acknowledge our Divine nature and the Divine nature of all individuals.  The U.S. government is based on ideals, more than bureaucracy or subterfuge.

MANIFEST DESTINY
The words of the Declaration of Independence will never go out of style.  They will always see the citizens of this country to their future, because they are forever relevant.
