Read Original Sources, not re-imagined history being taught to your kids. If you don’t teach your kids the truth they will hate America.
No leaders had ever made this declaration before July 4, 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. . .
The philosophy that Rights come from our Creator and people are born FREE has spread across the world. Meanwhile those who prefer to enslave their populations have fought against freedom ever since and constantly erase and rewrite history. Government does not grant rights, too many people believe they do.
July 4th is a day to celebrate why the United States is an exceptional country. Celebrate freedom.
I can’t recommend this book enough, it recaps how the Declaration of Independence came to be using original sources: https://www.amazon.com/Creating-Declaration-Independence-David-Shestokas/dp/099692812X
It’s an easy read that will reignite your love of America. Get it for your children, read it together. Ignite a love a history in them, the schools sure won’t.
The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence subjected themselves to a heinous death for treason against the British King. They pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor for freedom. They also had firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence. God helped them defeat the greatest force in the world at the time. If you don’t read history you don’t know the miracles that allowed freedom.
247 years later patriotism must be proclaimed by all who want freedom preserved. Can we survive as a country until the 250th celebration? Not if we don’t united around American greatness.
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” – Thomas Jefferson
