The Declaration of Independence ends with this simple promise the founders made to each other, “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.”
This July 4th let us once again “pledge to each other our lives”. Let us remember in this difficult time that our fortunes and futures are bound together.
The hope of our past and the faith in our future are with us this Independence Day, as we raise our heads high, face coverings and all showing that we care for our neighbor, showing that we respect the freedoms and safety of all citizens, showing our great love for our state, our love for our nation.
