The Birth of a Nation
* Quote from George Washington
group of peoplestanding,
We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created
equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unaliable Rights,
that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.
And for the support
of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence
we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
-Declaration of Independence
of the sacred fire of liberty
and the destiny of the
republican model of government
are justly considered as deeply
as finally staked on the experiment
intrusted to the hands
of the American people.
