Happy Independence Day! 🇺🇸

2024-happy-Independence-day.png

God Bless America!

“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.”

I consider myself fortunate and blessed to have grown up during an era when loving your country and striving to meet its founding ideals was normal and patriotic. Understanding our history, founding, and the course our nation charted was incorporated into our schools and daily lives. We loved our country without reserve and strived to achieve a level of perfection no nation in history had ever even dreamed of. Have we been perfect? No, we have been far from it at times, but our nation’s core ideals are committed to pursuing perfection, although we know perfection is allusive. It seems reasonable to me that your probability of achieving or landing near perfection is highly more probable having aimed for it over not.

America the Story of Us: Declaration of Independence

2024-america-the-story-of-us_declaration-of-independence.jpg

When armed conflict between bands of American colonists and British soldiers began in April 1775, the Americans were ostensibly fighting only for their rights as subjects of the British crown. By the following summer, with the Revolutionary War in full swing, the movement for independence from Britain had grown, and delegates of the Continental Congress were faced with a vote on the issue. In mid-June 1776, a five-man committee including Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin was tasked with drafting a formal statement of the colonies’ intentions. The Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence—written largely by Jefferson—in Philadelphia on July 4, a date now celebrated as the birth of American independence.

What Is Good Friday?

2024-what-is-good-friday.jpg

Good Friday, the Friday before Easter, is the Christian day to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus and His death at Calvary.

Good Friday is good because of what Christ did for mankind. Yes it is gruesome, but it was necessary to reconcile man to God and only His Son could accomplish this for us. Scripture shows us that death is not the end of the road. Resurrection is ahead. Resurrection is promised.

The biblical account of Good Friday can be found in all four Gospels:

Matthew | Mark | Luke | John

Good Friday this year is on Friday, March 29, 2024.

Is the United States a Democracy or a Constitutional Republic?

Republics and democracies both provide a political system in which citizens are represented by elected officials who are sworn to protect their interests.

In a pure democracy, laws are made directly by the voting majority leaving the rights of the minority largely unprotected.

In a republic, laws are made by representatives chosen by the people and must comply with a constitution that specifically protects the rights of the minority from the will of the majority.
