Secure the Blessings of Liberty.

Thanks to Schoolhouse Rock, I learned the Preamble to the Constitution in elementary school.

We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union,
establish justice, insure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defense,
promote the general Welfare and secure the blessings of liberty
to ourselves and our Posterity,
do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.

The words are just as poignant today as they were 235 years ago.

Happy Independence Day, friends. Be safe.

Have a lovely day.
