President's Message

Meditate and Celebrate

Memorial Day, which should be a somber day of remembrance, is instead now the official start of summer and a barrage of sales, sales, sales. Next month, for many Americans, the Fourth of July is a day for barbecues, baseball, beaches, and fireworks. Did our Founders spend days in a sweltering room in Philadelphia in 1776, and then go to war, imagining that future generations would spend Independence Day chilling and grilling? No, but they did do it so we could spend the day splashing happily in our pools or whatever we choose to do. In their honor, take time next month and read out loud and ponder the Declaration of Independence.

It is only about 1500 words and takes maybe ten minutes to read aloud, less if read silently. But, reading the Declaration of Ind Happy Birthday to a loved one in an empty room.  The point, like with any birthday, is to share it, loudly and proudly and joyfully.  So, why not read the Declaration every year?  Make it a jubilant ritual for you, your family, your friends, and your neighbors.  We Americans need a ritual to remind ourselves of our national origins and our national purpose. For thousands of years, the Passover Seder, or ritual meal, has helped Jews around the world to remember that they are descendants of an enslaved people who were liberated by the mighty Hand of God.  Although only one signer of the Declaration was a minister, the Founders of the United States, including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, (the so-called deists), and others were all well-versed in the Bible and knew the story of the Israelites' exodus from Egypt. They viewed their break from England as a new exodus, so much so that Franklin and Jefferson wanted the seal of the newly-formed United States to depict the Israelites escaping across the Red Sea.  Even though that design was not chosen, the original historical inspiration remains. 

As Americans, we need to reconnect to our heritage, to rediscover the beauty of our country's creation. We need to remind ourselves that the Declaration of Independence is unique in the history of the world--one of the finest manifestations of free will ever, a clear-headed example of choosing risk over predictable, secure and often mindless obedience.  We need to be an educated and informed people so that our hard-won liberty survives. As Thomas Jefferson stated, "If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be."

This Independence Day, DO enjoy the cookouts, fireworks, and other festivities, but don’t forget the reasons why we have so much to celebrate.  On Independence Day – and every day – Americans should remember and celebrate the Declaration’s timeless expression of our God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and recall all those who have pledged their lives, liberty, and sacred honor to uphold these truths.  So, go ahead, crack open and raise a cold one and loudly toast, HAPPY BIRTHDAY USA!

Tim Taylor, President
