During Celebrate Freedom Week in Texas, Florida, Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma, public school students recite the most popular words of the Declaration of Independence:
“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 … We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator, With certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” – Excerpts from The Declaration of Independence, 1776

When our 4th grade daughter, Steffy, brought home a homework assignment to memorize the first 250 words of the Declaration of Independence, she tried the usual ‘memory’ techniques without success. Our family decided that there had to be a better way.
Our family wrote a ‘sing-along’ that helped Steffy learn faster and have time to learn what the words really mean! Steffy and I recorded the ‘Declaration of Independence Song’ when Steffy was 11 years old. We later added a shorter version, ‘The Declaration Sing-Along’ for younger students to help them learn during Celebrate Freedom Week.
Since 2001, over 50,000 students all across America have sung The Declaration of Independence Song and Declaration Sing-Along to learn the opening words of the Declaration of Independence.
Today, Steffy is 25 years old and a Physical Therapist in Atlanta. I’m a Business Development Executive with IBM and live in Milton, Georgia with my wife Monica.
