Today we celebrate Independence Day – a holiday we are fortunate to have as part of our benefits at Broward College.As we celebrate, it’s a good time to remember with gratitude that our “Founding Fathers” helped establish our freedom and declared that: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”Let’s take a minute on our holiday tomorrow to remind ourselves and celebrate that we have these “unalienable” rights in our country, while many in other parts of the world suffer from oppression and limited freedoms and fundamental rights such as “Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The link below will carry you to an excellent website from the National Archives with text and high definition photos and history about the Declaration of Independence:

Enjoy a safe and happy Independence Day and celebrate our freedom, and our individual rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness thanks to our founding fathers.

President J. David Armstrong
