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.
– Thomas Jefferson The Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776
People naturally seek happiness to achieve or maintain a good state of mind. A good state of mind leads to new thoughts, which leads to new ideas, which leads to actions, and actions leads to change. It is in this change that we find success.
My wish is for the citizens of our great nation to seek happiness through new ideas, higher levels of thinking and a greater level of tolerance and goodwill for not only our country, but the world.
Happy Fourth of July!
