Larrys Vision: Teach the Teacher Driven 2 Teach David [McCullough] and I both believe it is important to educate people about our heritage. Otherwise, many of the freedoms we have had in America are going to be lost to future generations, and they wont even know what theyve lost. In some places, American history isnt even a required class anymorethats a tragedy. With all this in mind, David told me about a program in his home state of Maine that took teachers to historical sitesthe idea being that if you can get the teachers to experience history firsthand, they will become more knowledgeable and more passionate about the subject, and this will trickle down to the students. I took this idea with me back to Utah and grew it bigger. We call it our Teach the Teacher program, or the Education Project.Miller, Larry H., and Doug Robinson. Driven: an Autobiography.

This is a glorious day for America. Apr 19, 1775The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending against all hazards.Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: First a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can.Our cause is just and righteous, and we shall never be abandoned by Heaven while we show ourselves worthy of its aid and protection.

The furnace of affliction produces refinement in states as well as individuals. And the new Governments we are assuming in every part will require a purification from our vices, and an augmentation of our virtues, or they will be no blessings.[Independence Day] will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forevermore.

Let us trust God and our better judgment to set us right hereafter. United we stand, divided we fall.It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, peace, peacebut there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

The time is now [to] determine whether Americans are to be freemen or slaves. . . . Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us the only choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission. We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die.The Citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for giving to Mankind an enlarged and liberal policy: a policy worthy of imitation.

The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time; the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.All persons shall have full and free liberty of religious opinion; nor shall any be compelled to frequent or maintain any religious institution.We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable Rights; that among these, are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness; we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
