I have to memorize this for school so I thought writing it down might help.
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the cuases which impel them to separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men were created equal, that they are endowed by their Creater with certain unalienable Rights, that aming these are Life, Liberty and the oursuit of Happiness. --That to secure these rights, Governments are tinstituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,--That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Thats all of the Decleration I have to memorize. I also have to memorize this.
" Is life so Dear, and Peace so Sweet, as to be purchased at the prise of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others shall take but for me: Give me Liberty ir give me Death!"
