Independence Day


Hey Piglet’s,

 

Yeah It’s me again, time now for another oink session with the Pig.

 

The fourth of July is here once again and we all know what that means.  It means B.B.Q., potato salad, fireworks and lots of cold, cold beer.

 

Can anyone tell me the reason why we celebrate the fourth of July?  Other than B.B.Q. & fireworks.

 

Yes, that’s right, it is the day we observe the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the birth of our great nation. 

 

But what is the Declaration of Independence?  What does it say that makes it so important to have a holiday named after it?

 

It says: A unanimous Declaration of 13 colonies (United States) signed by 56 men listing the reasons why they no longer wished to be governed by the King of England.  It also says that they declare themselves to be free men.

 

Free from the oppression brought onto them.

 

They stated they would no longer be pushed around.

 

They stated they would no longer have unfair laws placed upon them.

 

These brave men said “NO MORE”!

 

They signed this “Declaration of Independence” from the King.

 

They signed their own death warrant.

 

They declared that they would be free or they would rather be dead. 

 

When was the last time you read the Declaration of Independence?  If it has been more than a few years ago, I would suggest you may want to read it again.  How do you find a copy of it you say?  That’s easy just click here.

 

Read it, take in each word it says.  Feel what our foundering fathers felt in their hearts.  Honor each of them by taking a moment this holiday to realize what it was that those brave men did for you.  And after you read it, pass it on to the next person and have them read it.  It is the right thing to do this Fourth of July holiday.

 

Ride HARD or Stay Home.
