We all know the first line, “When in the course of human events,” and about “life liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” but how many of us really know what’s in the Declaration of Independence? So, on this Fourth of July, we thought we’d help out with this reading by a cast of Hollywood actors. Nothing fancy, a bit dense, longer than most DDG videos but we believe that reviewing this establishing document of our nation which began to set out the freedoms we enjoy to this day is well worth it.
This performance launched the Declaration of Independence Road Trip where an original of the “People’s Document” traveled the country. Let these words and ideas be an inspiration to civic activism and exercising our rights. Have fun and stay safe in celebrating!
