In just a few days, we will be celebrating the 237th birthday of the United States of America.
As almost every American knows, 237 years ago 56 delegates from the 13 colonies began to put their name to Thomas Jefferson's eloquently written Declaration of Independence, thus launching themselves and our country into the annals of history.
As you go about your personal celebrations and barbeques this Thursday, July 4th, 2013, take a few minutes of your time to re-read the Declaration of Independence, and reflect on its words.
And as you read it this year, also consider that the 56 men who put their names to that document were branded traitors by their government of the time.
