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.
Without the sacrifice — done so willingly because of their profound belief in what those words say and what those words mean — of so many throughout this country’s history, we would not be able to live up to those amazing words.
Thank you. God bless you.
Rest in peace.
