This Fourth of July, when you watch the fireworks, will you think about the Declaration of Independence? We should, says John Stossel in a new Reason TV video.
Wishing all of you a very happy Fourth of July as we celebrate the greatest nation in history.
I just got done reading President Calvin Coolidge’s speech on the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence on July 5, 1926, in Philadephia. This is a brilliant speech and well worth a few minutes to read.
Via the Ayn Rand Institute, traditionally, the Fourth of July is a day for fireworks and cookouts. But we should take the time to also appreciate the deeper meaning of Independence Day.
“But with Christ, we have access in a one-to-one relationship, for, as in the Old Testament, it was more one of worship and awe, a vertical relationship. The New Testament, on the other hand, we look across at a Jesus who looks familiar, horizontal. The combination is what makes the Cross.”
Spotted this post on Memorial Day from CBS News’ Andy Rooney this morning. The commentary was originally delivered in 2005 but, rings true today.
Memorial Day is the day that we salute all the women and men who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Have we forgotten the meaning of Memorial Day??
