Happy July 4th!

How cool is it that what happened on this day is so monumental - we literally say to each other - "Happy July 4th." Everyone knows the day. I can only think of one other day that is synonymous with the events of that day.  But we won't bring that up.  It's not a happy day, like July 4th was. 

You can probably recite the beginning of the Declaration of Independence, but have you ever noticed how it ends? I wiki'd it, check it out:

"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

Pretty cool, eh?
