"Eleven Score and Thirteen Years Ago..."
..."our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."
Two hundred and thirty three years ago -- on July 4, 1776 -- America claimed it's independence from Britain... and Democracy was born. Since then, every day, thousands of immigrants come to this country, so they too can live the American Dream of Freedom and Prosperity. If it weren't for my own ancestors doing just that, and coming from Germany, Norway, and Russia over one hundred years ago, I wouldn't be here writing this.
So, here's to Freedom! Here's to Liberty. Happy Birthday America!
