Happy 4th! to all our immigrants & First Nations

Let America be America - now and forever more - let freedom ring!

Even when truth is a lot messier than the idealized version eventually presented in our history, the Declaration of Independence was a good start for this nation and remains our strong foundation.

In June 1776, a little over a year after the start of the American Revolutionary War, the US Continental Congress huddled together in a hot room in Philadelphia to talk independence.

Kenneth C. Davis dives into some of the lesser known facts about the process of writing the Declaration of Independence and questions one very controversial omission.

Unless you're one of the first Americans, a Native American, you came from some place else, somebody brought you. . . .They all came here knowing that what makes somebody an American is not just blood or birth, but allegiance to our founding principles and the faith in the idea that anyone from anywhere can write the next great chapter of our story, and that's still true today."

The Declaration of Independence clearly states our rights as individuals. Expressing the American mind and raising the American spirit. Not just for America but for the world.
