Independence Day

Happy Independence Day (and Fourth of July, too).
In spite of riots, cancel culture, and Wuhan coronavirus, I believe in the United States of America.

“The Man must be bad indeed who can look upon the events of the American Revolution without feeling the warmest gratitude towards the great Author of the Universe whose divine interposition was so frequently manifested in our behalf.”

—George Washington: letter to Samuel Langdon, September 28, 1789

So I don’t just thank the signers of the Declaration of Independence, who were brave and honorable men in spite of their flaws and foibles, but the God who put a desire for freedom in their hearts and the idea that all men are created equal under Him in their minds.

“God has a special providence for fools, drunkards, and the United States of America.”

― Otto von Bismarck

Even still.
