As you plan your holiday today, I thought I would bring T&T readers some little known facts about our nation's beginnings.
July 4th is the day we historically celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. However, there are online sources that indicate our independence was declared on July 2nd, and the document signed a month later on August 2nd.
I guess there will always be those who will believe a story because of who told it, or because it's more interesting than the truth. Although I started T&T over five years ago as an online diary of attending a murder trial, myself and the rest of T&T's contributors pride ourselves on getting the story right and reporting the facts as accurately as possible.
Stay safe and enjoy your holiday. I'll leave you with a favorite quote:
American traditions and the American ethic require us to be truthful, but the most important reason is that truth is the best propaganda and lies are the worst. To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; to be credible we must be truthful. It is as simple as that. Edward R. Murrow
