At the Feet of Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson wrote and signed
the Declaration of Independence
- a document that was considered high treason
for the country that ruled over him.
To those brave men and women
who conceived of a better way for mankind to live,
may I offer my deepest appreciation
for your courage to put your life on the line
for me.
You were able to imagine
 that a new nation was possible
where these words would ring true for generations.

"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."
