Happy 4th of July!




Happy 4th of July, everyone!

We are so grateful to the founding fathers of the United States who proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence:

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.

This sentence has been called "one of the best known sentences in the English language" and "the most potent and consequential words in American history" (wikipedia). It certainly has influenced the very fabric of our country and our decision making as American people.

We hope today you have a wonderful 4th of July and pursue some happiness!

Below, we have a few inspirational projects that are fourth of July themed:

Awesome paper! Happy safe and fun 4th! 'You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.'

Saskia said...
