Over two centuries later, that country still stands. On this her birthday, it is important to remember those scared people who would stand up to an empire that towered over the globe, and showed the world that there was a better way.
The 4th of July is important for more than just America. It's easy to forget that the Declaration was distributed around the world, was intended for mass consumption. It would inspire others to defy tyranny the world over, and was truly one of the bright spots in the history of mankind.
Happy Independence Day, everybody.
