The Declaration of Independence

The people of the United States celebrate each year an Independence Day, a day marking a milestone in the world's progress, inaugurating as it did one of the highest forms of government known to history. The fifty-six men whose names are attached to the great paper, the Declaration of Independence, could not have glimpsed the future of the country that their deed helped to establish. Nevertheless, they were used by God in bringing a plan of justice and liberty to their country.

Now, as the years have established that plan and placed spiritual ideas of freedom and equality firmly in our midst, it is the sacred duty and joyous privilege of every citizen to know that this great work, inspired and sanctioned by Principle, can never be annulled, nor can the advantages it brings ever cease to be available to bless us in the future as in the past, if we place proper reliance on divine Truth. "For the Lord of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?"
