Upholding The Declaration

“This is the real history we celebrate on Independence Day: soaring ideals, some of the loftiest ever articulated—and it is equally a story of hardship, sacrifice and unquenchable courage. Different as they seem, each inspired the other. Together they gave the world something novel: a unified people inspired by the thought of freedom, and a nation built on ideas of equality and self-governance. These ideas are our greatest legacy: each generation must learn them, uphold them—and pass them to the next.”
