FCW Insider: Happy Fourth of July!

Given the complexities and challenges we all face, it is sometimes easy to forget how this all got started. I went back and read the Declaration of Independence this week. The National Archives has a copy -- well, they have the copy -- and a transcript, of course.

The video below has some history -- and then a reading from the likes of Mel Gibson and other Hollywood personalities.

Again, if you haven't heard the words in awhile, it is only 15 minutes long... and worth a reminder about how all of this got started.

Happy Fourth of July !
(And be sure to check out the Fourth of July in numbers from the Census.)
