The Declaration of Independence from HBO's John Adams

When I think of celebrating independence, I always think of this scene from HBO's John Adams.

These men all voted to sever ties with "the mother country" and make their Declaration of Independence. It wasn't an obvious move as the debate began, but by the end, they concluded that it was their right to govern themselves. The risked their lives and their fortunes and banded together to become the United States of America.

Thanks to all who continue to stand and defend our freedoms today.

Happy 4th of July!
