holiday reading

Need a little challenge on this holiday weekend?  

Read the Declaration of Independence.

Perhaps its the homeschooling mom role that brings this to mind or perhaps its just the concerns that I have about our country right now that make this document more relevant.  

Really.  Read it.  It doesn't take long to do and you can find it in history books or encyclopedias or online.  Of course, you may get stuck pondering the first several sentences over and over again, but keep reading right to the very last important sentence.  

And if you need more of a challenge, read up on the lives of the 56 men who signed this notable political document that has been a part of our country's heritage for over two centuries.  

After reading this, may your heart have a deeper understanding and a solemn respect for our country's founders as America celebrates over the weekend.
