  •  Question to Kossacks (4.00)
    Let's not forget that one item on that list was enough of a reason for the colonists to declare their independence.  One of those items was enough for them to give their lives.

    Each year I ask my fresnmen students when we study this document as part of a "great ideas" curriculum, which would you be willing to die for.

    If you see georgia10's list of parallels as being true to the original document, parallel thinking leads me to ask of myself and of us all, "Which would I be willing to die for?"

    If we answer, "None," then we are forced to question our worthiness as inheritors of this Nation.  Sobering.

    They burn our children in their wars and grow rich beyond the dreams of avarice.
