Safer Society Foundation will be closed on Monday, July 3, and Tuesday, July 4, marking the Independence Day holiday in the United States. It was on July 4, 1776, of course, that the Continental Congress, representing the thirteen colonies, then at war with Great Britain, adopted the Declaration of Independence, officially dissolving “the political bands which have connected them with another.” The most famous signature on that document is that of John Hancock. Our own Stephen Zeoli has written a short article about Hancock, whom he says is an under-appreciated founding father. You can read the article here.
Wishing a Happy Independence Day to our American readers, and a fine Tuesday to everyone else.
