Author’s Take

Take the time to read the Declaration of Independence this weekend. Contemplate what it says, what it means, and whether America is living up to its promise. I believe it is. It is difficult to fathom that there was a time in human history in which the idea that humans are born free, that humans have rights as individuals given to them by God, and that government both must protect those rights AND are not allowed to infringe upon them was a radical, paradigm-shifting concept.
