A Family’s “Declaration of Kindness”, on July 4th
My Friend reads the ‘Declaration of Independence” published every July 4th in the local newspaper. On July 4th 2016, he paraphrased the “Declaration” as a “Declaration of Family Kindness”, to be said before today’s meal, and every July 4th thereafter:
“When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for a family to dissolve the selfish bonds of wants, that separate one from another, and form a family of common support, which Nature’s God intends.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all family members are created equal, endowed by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights – that among them are life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
Prudence dictates that a family long established, should not be changed or discarded for light or transient reasons. Rather, may each member find peace, comfort, and joy resting in the palm of God’s hand and in the family’s bosom.

To establish this unity of support and kindness:
Be It Resolved:
Whereas, all members are made in the image and likeness of God.
Whereas, each member does not have a soul. Each member is a soul. Each has a body.
Whereas, the world, with the exception of “me”, is made up of others.
Whereas, God so loved the world He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins.
Whereas, Christ reminds us “To love one another, as He has loved us.”
Whereas, each family member loves each other member, and others, as God loves them.
We mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor.
