In this podcast episode, we provide a speech by Paul Harvey which is called “The pledge of America’s first citizens.” Mr. Harvey gave this speech annually about the price paid by many of the Founding Fathers for their involvement in the American Revolutionary War. As Mr. Harvey states, some people go to war since they have nothing to lose, in this case, the Founding Fathers had everything to lose since they were already men of influence, power, and wealth. They risked it all for the rest of the soon-to-be Americans and us as their descendants. Some lost it all in the process. On Independence Day, it is good to remember their sacrifices for us.
In addition to this audio episode, I also provide three PDF documents: first, a copy of the Declaration of Independence, second, an article about the Founding Fathers, and finally the backstory about composing the Declaration of Independence.
