Happy Independence Day!

In this video, Matt Damon recites the Declaration of Independence, which was approved on this date in 1776. He gives us his thoughts on the meaning of the Declaration - some good food for thought.

As a side note, did you know that former President Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, who both helped draft the Declaration of Independence, died on the same day, exactly 50 years, to the day, after the Declaration was approved? They both died on July 4, 1826. Interesting!
