When you celebrate the United States’ 231st birthday tomorrow, here’s a suggestion to make your family’s Independence Day a bit more meaningful: Read aloud the Declaration of Independence. Or better yet, you can listen to someone read it aloud for you.
The Independence Institute (where I work my day job) has released today a Podcast recording of Jon Caldara reading aloud the full text of the Declaration. A full listen from beginning to end will take less than 12 minutes, but it will help put into perspective where we’ve come from as a nation and the Founding principles that make America great.
God bless America, and may you all have a Safe and Happy Fourth!
