Happy Fourth of July!!!!

Two hundred and thirty five years ago, America took the first step in gaining her independence by drafting and distributing the Declaration of Independence, a document which helped lay the foundation for the government of the great nation we now live in. Since that time the document has been preserved. Over time, some of principles outlined in the document have been trampled on and abused, but that doesn't mean that we're not still a great nation and that those principles don't still apply. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowned by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness... these are the foundation, these are what we all pursue, and these are what life is all about. Today, the day when we're celebrating our independence, we at boospire wanted to honor our great nation and the principles it was founded on. What better way to do that than by honoring the flag, which represents those principles? So, we salute the flag and America, in honor of what she is and what she stands for.

I pledge allegiance,
to the flag,
of the United States of America.
And to the republic
for which it stands,
One nation, under God,
with liberty and justice,
for all.
