Reaction to the Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence was at last released on July 4. It had been a relief for most, an escape from the unruly government led by the King of Great Britain. Indeed, the tyranny of his leadership and the countless offences he had made to the states and the innumerable murders that were accounted to him would at last be concluded. Our states are now free from the oppressive hands of the British conquerors.

I hope, however, that this start would not be the end of the States’ libertarian movement but rather the dawn of a new time; the time where people are all held the same amidst the differences in color or race. I strongly agree 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, such as stated in the Declaration.

But somehow, I also believe that it is not only our government but also ourselves that ought to work to establish our responsibilities that guides these rights. The declaration of our states’ independence marks a new beginning for us all and with it comes a new hope for the future generations. I accept as true that our independence, as validated by the Declaration, would stand as the foundation of potential governments and that we, as civilized and free people would strive further towards a better way of living, a more content life, and a true liberty amongst all.
