Happy Independence Day America!

Independence day,( or July 4th as it's more commonly known) is seen as a holiday (a day off) accentuated with fireworks by most people here in the US.

However, it's actually a celebration due to the signing of the Declaration of Independence here in Philadelphia, on July 4th, 1776.

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

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...
