Happy Birthday Declaration of Independence

4 Jul

Happy 4th, everyone!

I’m enjoying this day swimming and sunning and picnicing with my Dad, his wife, my neice, and my daughters.

This being the anniversary of the signing of The Declaration of Independence, I am posting Stevie Wonder’s Happy Birthday song here.  Sure, it’s a birthday tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr., but isn’t that one of the ideals of the Declaration in the first place–that all men are created equal?

It’s 2012, forty-four years after MLK died.  Are we all created equal?
