“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
242 years later, we all need to remember that from the very beginning, our nation has acknowledged that there is a CREATOR, and that He is the Source of our rights.

May God bless each one of us with SELF-EVIDENT FAITH and may our faith be self-evident to all those around us as we live it out day by day in these United States of America.
