ANALYSIS/OPINION:

“We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal,” reads the Declaration of Independence, the most important document for the advancement of society the world has ever known.

We have become a nation that cares little for these words and those that follow. We have become such a pitiful sort that instead of recognizing the value of the infinite, innate powers of the individual, we merely drift through our lives, encouraging everyone around us - particularly our youth - to remain ineffectual and uninformed.

Sooner or later, one comes to feel as though life is so complex that it is no use trying to understand it. Honor, courage and commitment are empty words without action. We should remember that human beings have untapped potential. It’s time that indolence and ignorance become a thing of the past.
