Freedom Week inspires GBMS students
The last full week of September has been proclaimed celebrate “Freedom Week” by the Florida Legislature. To commemorate the founding principles of our nation we will be reciting an excerpt from the Declaration of Independence after the Pledge of Allegiance.
“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. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
