We Hold These Truths To Be Self Evident

When's the last time you read the Declaration of Independence? Before today's picnics and fireworks, take a moment to visit the National Archives web site and reacquaint yourselves with the bold statement that set this nation forward.

Even better than reading the Declaration is hearing it read out loud; For years, NPR's Morning Edition has presented a reading of the Declaration of Independence featuring various NPR hosts, reporters, and commentators. It never fails to move me.

Celebrate, enjoy, and remember.
