To all my fellow citizens of the United States of America.

Happy 235th Birthday! 

Remember the risk our forefathers took on this date in 1776:

A toast? Yeah. To high treason. That’s what these men were committing when they signed the Declaration (of Independence). Had we lost the war, they would have been hanged, beheaded, drawn and quartered, and-Oh! Oh, my personal favorite-and had their entrails cut out and burned! So… Here’s to the men who did what was considered wrong, in order to do what they knew was right…  — Ben Gates from National Treasure (2004)

Be safe and enjoy the long holiday weekend!
