Approaching July, it’s the time to refresh our memory with the meaning of this super grand American holiday. What’s the Declaration of Independence? How did the founders envision this country in the celebration of Independence Day? What to do to celebrate fourth of July this year?
In honor of the Declaration of Independence to commorate America’s revolutionary Charter of Freedom and the document upon which the nation’s founding principles were established, Americans observe a federal holiday on July 4.
Our founding fathers envisioned a celebration filled with gun, fireworks, games not for showing military prowess, but for displaying the joys of freedom.
“The evening was closed with the ringing of bells, and at night there was a grand exhibition of fireworks, which began and concluded with thirteen rockets on the commons, and the city was beautifully illuminated. Every thing was conducted with the greatest order and decorum, and the face of joy and gladness was universal.”
The Declaration of Independence as one of the most important documents in the history of the United States, was an official act taken by all 13 American colonies in declaring independence from British rule. It outlines the premise upon which American democracy is anchored. Here is an excerpt from the Declaration of Independence (U.S. 1776):
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
