Every summer I make the journey back to my home town on Long Island to celebrate the Fourth of July with my dearest friends. I go back to participate in a wonderful tradition in which they gather friends and family on their lawn to read The Declaration of Independence aloud. It is a spirited reading with hoots and hollers for the patriots and boos and hisses for King George, all facilitated by lots of free-flowing American beer.
If you'd like to host your own reading, just print this document, hand out the parts to your friends (the parts are clearly marked), and read with pride.
Let freedom ring!
