Today's Los Alamos Monitor features the Declaration of Independence on the front page. We urge you to read it; read it aloud with your family and friends to gain a renewed understanding of the courage and foresight of the founding fathers, who at great personal risk, made a break with England.
The core concepts of this document remain as important and valid today as they were at the signing 237 years ago.
We wish to thank--and urge you to support--the advertisers who participated this effort. You'll see their ads featured thoughout today's newspaper.
In the event you don't have a copy of the paper handy, here's the Declaration of Independence:
IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
