Re: Ever Wondered What Happened to the Fifty Six Men Who Signed the Declaration of Independence?
I feel much pride and reverence for those who laid the foundation of our country. However, my feelings do not change the fact that our forefathers were men of privilege who assumed the architecture of a new nation and a new world. "All men were created equal" was for the wealthy and the land owners, not for the slave, laborer, or the poor.
What I do is to embrace the higher order of thinking and civilization afforded by the amendments to the Constitution and our eternal resolve to protect them.
