The Declaration of Independence Part 1

Its amazing what is in it!

The Declaration written in 1776: Wow! Isn't that happening NOW?
Get involved...perform it aloud...in groups....alone...live...online:

"He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their salaries"

"He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to the civil power"

"He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foriegn to our constitution and unacknowledged by our laws"

"He is at this time                                

transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries                      

to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, 

already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy 

scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages,                   

and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation."

Declaring Your Freedom

Congratulations!
You may have taken the first step toward creating your ideal life.
The Declaration of Independence inspired people all over the world to embrace their freedom. As you take the time to find out what is in this document make a commitment to freedom in your own life.

Freedom means different things for different people.

You may wish for financial freedom, freedom from pain, freedom to travel, freedom to express yourself, freedom for others. We uphold freedoms that support and encourage the right of every individual to grow and contribute to their full potential, that we are all uniquely human, and gifted in individual ways that serve each other.

Even though freedom is very personal, it is difficult to achieve it on one's own. No one is an island. We are all fed by the same breezes and currents. It is by forming alliances with those of like mind that success is most easily achieved.

Making Your Declaration of Independence helps others to have the courage to take steps in their own life to create freedom. Read the posts below to learn more about this project.

Yours in Freedom,
Jesai Jayhmes
