to a great adventure, my retirement. My own declaration of independence if you will. I don’t know why or how this minor occurrence in the scheme of things has exploded into hugh fireworks displays around the country. I did not see any such displays on the anniversary of our country’s declaration of independence on the second of July. If you deem it appropriate to celebrate my retirement, I thank you. Hope you have a great time. But instead of setting off skyrockets, and colorful aerial bombs thus polluting our skies, I ask that you use the “ILoveFireworks” app (99 cents) on your mobile device. Then you can celebrate any and all special occurrences whenever you like and save our atmosphere. Thank you. #declarationofindependence #adventure #July2nd #pollution # retirement #celebration #July4th #atmosphere 😉
Again this year, the citizens of the United States of America will celebrate their country’s declaration of independence on the wrong day. And again this year, I will post the history why…
“So, it was done, the break was made, in words at least: on July 2, 1776, in Philadelphia, the American colonies declared independence.” Page 129 “John Adams” David McCullough On July 4, 1776, only John Hancock and Charles Thomson signed the document to authentic it so it could be printed. Page 136 (“John Adams”) “The actual signing of the document would not take place until Friday, August 2, after a fair copy…” Page 137 (“John Adams”) “…Thomas McKean of Delaware appears not to have signed until January 1777, which made him the last.” Page 138 (“John Adams”) Independence was achieved, “”His Britannic Majesty acknowledges the said United States . . . to be free, sovereign and independent states.” “Done at Paris,” read the final line, “this third day of September, in the the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and eighty three.” The mighty Revolution had ended. The new nation was born.”” Page 285 “John Adams”
Happy Independence Day!
