February Greetings from the Great Lakes!

An individual is truly fortunate to have been born in a “free” country.  It is a great blessing to live where liberty, justice, and opportunity are cherished and protected.  The concept that human beings have rights is arguably the noblest idea ever to emerge from the mind of man.

The Preamble of the Declaration of Independence has become a rallying cry and source of hope for humanity ever since July 4, 1776: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  Our Creator may have endowed us with human rights, but He also tempered them with the rule of law.
