Let us ask ourselves, ‘What kind of people do we think we are?’

And let us answer, ‘Free people, worthy of freedom and determined not only to remain so but to help others gain their freedom as well.’

~ Ronald Reagan

Over 240 years ago, the American colonists—feeling overburdened by the oppressive laws of England—determined to overthrow English rule and bring forth a nation of their own. The Declaration of Independence, ratified July 4, 1776, declared the desire to be free, but did not actually make the colonists free. Freedom always comes at a hefty price, and in the case of the American Revolution, it came at the cost of blood, property, and happiness for many men and women.
