By The People, For The People. The Freedom, and self awareness, coupled with extreme responsibility that must have went into that statement.
To no longer be ruled by a Monarchy, under a religious rule that told you how and when you could think and believe. To have a say now in the laws that you lived by, for YOUR voice to be heard.
Are we living up to the ideals set forth in the Declaration of Independence? Do we make our voice heard, or do we sit at home and complain about the way our president and congress do their jobs? Our government is a Democracy ran by the people, for the people. Congressmen and Senators depend on us to make our needs and wants known, so that they can be OUR voice in Washington D.C.
It is time we all do our part. By the people, For the people.
