Why today is a holiday...

Try to remember the importance of what happened today. 56 men stood up against the oppression of the British Empire and voted to give us our own country. These men were a little scared and nervous, because they knew the British government would probably try to kill them for this act of rebellion. They did it anyway...and Thank God they did. American liberty and its economic progress has improved the lives and secured the freedom of hundreds of millions of others around the world. It only took 56 men to change the future of the world.

That is why their names are on streets and buildings all over this country.
