241 years ago last Tuesday, 56 men gathered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and signed the Declaration of Independence.
They signed beneath the following amazing words:
… with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our Sacred Honor.
In short, they promised Almighty God, (to whom they looked for protection), and each other, (to whom they made the most solemn promise imaginable), to give their lives, everything they owned, and most prized of all, their honor; to support “this Declaration”.
I will always remember these men, and thank them for the honor of living in the country they gave so much to create.
