REVOLTING MEN IN SHORT TIGHTS

I hope the title caught your attention.  This is a repost of one from July 3, 2018.  In preparation for the big celebration, it might be a good idea to take a look at this again.  Our nation is once more divided in so many ways.  If we don’t set aside our differences and begin to work together, I fear we will face another revolution.

This week is one of celebration for our country, as we honor our independence from tyrannical rule on July 4, 1776.  Flags will be raised, parades held, firework displays will explode to re-announce our freedom.  Do we know what it’s all about?

I decided to read through the actual Declaration of Independence in its entirety.  Most of us are familiar with the preamble – “When in the course of human events …” But the rest of the words aren’t usually read, yet they ring true in many ways today.  Our founding fathers were brilliant in their construction of this document.  They presented their case for independence from King George and the British Empire in a very clear way.
The first pieces of evidence against the king:

  • “He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
  • He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
  • He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.”

Those are only a few of their complaints.  I would advise all Americans to read the rest of this endictment.  Many things those early colonists faced are once again happening in our country.  I’m not suggesting another revolution, but I think it’s important for us to go back and look at our beginnings in order to heal our land.  It might even be a good idea to read through the Declaration of Independence with our children and make a lesson out of it. They will, after all, be leading this great nation some day.

The final statement of this important document says it all.

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

 

 

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
