To those brave patriots who risked lives, fortunes, and sacred honor, putting their faith in the protection of Divine Providence, and signed the Declaration of Independence without knowing if it was a nation's birth certificate or their own death sentences:
Happy birthday to the Sweet Land of Liberty!
God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? ~ Thomas Jefferson
May God's blessing of liberty continue forevermore.
