Weekend Reading: Independence Day

As we approach the 4th of July and reflect on the freedom – as well as responsibility – that we have as American citizens, don’t miss “Freedom and Obligation”, a message delivered by U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas at Hillsdale College’s 2016 commencement ceremony.

Take some time also for President Calvin Coolidge’s Independence Day speech from 1926, “The Inspiration of the Declaration”.  You can read excerpts here or download it in its entirety here.
