My Thankful List - 4th of July

July 4, 2020

My Thankful List

I am thankful for July 4, 1776. The Congress of the 13 states voted to be Independent of Great Britain

Thank you for the brave men who wrote the document: Thomas Jefferson with Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams.  

Thank you for the 56 men who signed the document, especially John Hancock, the largest signature of all.  

In signing the document, they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their honor.  This is what happened to these men: captured and killed, fought to the death, lost their homes and land, and their families were killed.  Just as they pledged with their eyes wide open, they all suffered losses.  

In signing this document, they knew that they could be killed by England soldiers.  Do our political leaders have the same strength even until death?

Thank you, Jesus, for America and the 4th of July, USA Independence Day.  Thank you for all the brave men who signed the Declaration of Independence.
