History Repeats Itself

By Boot Girl Myra

In the midst of the cacophony of roller coaster thrill riding this weekend, my 70 year old aunt asked me this question: how often do you read The Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution? I was dumbfounded. Not so much by the question as much as my inability to recall the last reading, which means it’s been too long. It’s the 4th of July and high time I celebrate my independence with more than a cob of corn and some fireworks. It’s a great time to repeat history and discover once again the value in the words penned in these documents which remain the cornerstone of our nation after 235 years.

I marvel at our founding fathers’ quest to think far beyond themselves and create these great works that have withstood the test of time. I mean think about how much vision and hope they must have had to think beyond their colonial era and consider a declaration that would be the pillar of all those who followed after them. I am one such person. I am the benefactor of the contents written in these very old documents. So are you! When was the last time you read them? Do it today and every 4th of July. The history you repeat in doing so will preserve your power to affect the future!
