July 4th 1776, The Birth of the Greatest Nation Of All Time.

The Signing of the Declaration of Independence, as depicted by John Trumbell in 1819.

July 4th, 1776 was one of the greatest days in the history of the world, for this was the day the American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain, and were transformed into the United States of America.

Never has such a country, whatever its shortcomings over the years, provided the world with such hopes and opportunity. This is why most of the world would love to live in the United States. People die trying to come here.

The Fourth of July is a great moment, a time of birth and renewal. I feel blessed to live in this great nation.
