Happy July 4th everyone! Please take time to be thankful that we live in this great country and to remember all those who strove to make and keep it free. I am reminded that the Declaration of Independence was the “sacred” document that Abraham Lincoln seemed to favor and build on most. For it must be surely true that it served as the basis for the Emancipation Proclamation and for the idea that all human beings are created equal. The great contradiction that Lincoln challenged and overcame was the fact that there were enslaved human beings in the United States. When he spoke of a “new birth of freedom,” he was referring to a United States of America that had no existed prior to his presidency. It was to be- and still is today “the land of the free.” May it ever be so. God bless America.
