OUR BIRTHDAY

THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES
WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who have given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the VETERAN, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.

THANK THE VETERAN AND ALL THE MILITARY WHO HAVE MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO CELEBRATE THIS BIRTHDAY

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US

Happy Birthday to us
Every Fourth of July
It’s when freedom was born
Why so many did die

So wherever you go or whatever you do
Take a moment for prayer to remember those who
Gave their all for this land and for me and for you

Happy Birthday to us
Sing as loud as can be
That the whole world will know
We will always be free
(Repeat Chorus)

Happy Birthday to us
May we ever be true
To our daughters and sons
And the Red, White, and Blue
(Repeat Chorus)

WITHOUT THE FOURTH OF JULY THERE WOULD BE NO OTHER HOLIDAYS

    Gene,

    Great post. I love it. And if it were not for God, we would have none of these rights too.
