I am grateful to Newsday for reminding us, in such an artful manner on the July 4 Opinion page, of “The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America.”
The last line holds special meaning, especially the phrase “. . . with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”
Would that every holder of public office took that same pledge, suffering just consequences if the pledge is not upheld.
