Sovereignty: The Idea Behind the Fourth of July

America’s Fourth of July is the quintessential summer holiday.  It’s a time for barbecues, fireworks, parades and the gathering of loved ones.  For many people, it serves as a much needed break from work and a chance to take a family vacation while the kids are on their summer break.  The holiday also serves as a historical reminder of our country’s sovereignty.  If we self-reflect, we can apply the meaning of sovereignty to our own lives as well.

Independence Day, or Fourth of July (the current U.S. Code recognizes both names for the holiday), is the federal holiday in the U.S. commemorating our Declaration of Independence from England on July 4, 1776.  Actually, Congress had voted to declare independence on July 2nd, but it wasn’t declared until two days later, on July 4th.

Our nation was founded on the principle of sovereignty: the United States is an independent nation, governed by the American people, controlling its own affairs, without any interference from outside sources or bodies.  The Founding Fathers realized that if America does not have sovereignty, it does not have independence.  They risked their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to declare their independence from the rule of King George III.

Our Founding Fathers were taking a page from the Pilgrims that arrived in America in 1620 from England.  There, they set up the Mayflower Compact, which was quite unique and revolutionary at the time.  It created a self-government to govern their new colony by the people – something that did not exist anywhere else at that time.  This would later become a key founding principle of the United States of America.

“Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.”

– Thomas Jefferson

In sticking with our Founding Fathers’ principles, we can take the meaning of sovereignty and apply it to all aspects of our lives, especially where it pertains to our health.  Health sovereignty is the right to take control of your own health and make the decision to lead a happy and healthy lifestyle, on your terms.  This is the cornerstone of everything we do at Sovereign Silver.  All of our efforts, research and commitment to excellence center on the idea of health sovereignty for everyone.  This goes far beyond just incorporating Bio-Active Silver Hydrosol and First Aid Gel into your daily life, and that’s why we’ve created the Sovereign Life Community where you can be the first to know about our latest healthy living articles, in addition to hearing about our special promotions, product news and contests.

“The foundation of success in life is good health; that is the substratum fortune; it is also the basis of happiness.  A person cannot accumulate a fortune very well when he is sick.”

– P.T. Barnum

The legendary showman understood that without our health, we have nothing.  We can take our health for granted but when our health suffers, getting healthy again is all we can think about and we’ll use all of our resources to make it happen.  The first step to health sovereignty is to put being healthy in the forefront of our thinking.  Join our Sovereign Life Community today at SovereignSilver.com and take that step towards health sovereignty.
