LISTEN NOW! In this original intent of America moment, Greg shares about the Founding Fathers and some of their journey to get to the point of writing the declaration of Independence.  He continues to share how the first few lines of the Declaration of Independence are so important because it is the main premise for what the rest of the document was about.  We must not forget that America has government for the people and by the people.

Excerpt of the Declaration of Independence
“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold 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.”
