"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."
This year my thoughts have returned to this passage, especially the three basic human rights. While Life and Liberty are listed as passive, inherent privileges, Happiness is the only thing that we must actively pursue.
I have come to a bit of a crossroads in my life yet again, which always forces me to ask myself, "What will make me happy?" Just something else to think about this coming holiday.
