“It’s a Good Day”

There are strange coincidences in history……..one little known example is the coincidence of July 4th, 1826.

This date was the fiftieth anniversary of the Declaration of Independance; two men helped give birth to this document, these same two men ended their lives on this day as well. 

July 4th, 1826 took John Adams and Thomas Jefferson from this land they served so well.  Coincidence…….

It is reported, though not authenticated, that upon his death……Adams’ last words were…..”Jefferson survives”   Jefferson hadn’t, hours before, unknown to Adams, he had already left on his journey to meet one his mortal body also served.

When told it was the 4th, Adams is said to have replied in a clear voice….”It is a great day. It is a good day”…….

Lakota warriors used these words in battle…….It is a good day to die.  Fitting, warriors for our democratic freedoms knew July 4th was indeed, such a good day.

Happy Independence Day

Namaste,

Shirl
