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.
-Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776
Today I am thankful that in spite of all the political drama that seems to constantly be at the forefront of our governmental system, we live in a country that is trying its best to be (as Lincoln stated) "of the people, by the people, for the people." I pray that God will continue to bless Americans in this way, and that He uses us as a guiding light for those who are living in the dark, even if it isn't easy for us.
