It’s been hard for me to feel patriotism and pride for the United States over the last several years. However, Hometown Tales, one of my favorite podcasts recently decided to recite, in a Podcast, the Declaration of Independence in honor of that day.

Gene, one of the hosts, recited the entire text in such conviction and fervor that I was inspired and proud to be free.  Hopefully the next president will be a source of inspiration for us all.

“People should not fear their government. The government should fear its people.”
