Independence 2

Independence from Great Britain was an idea whose time had come
Navigating the 'high seas of King George 111' required a greater King

Dissolution and revolution, the price paid when there is no resolution
Eruptions result from the build-up of too much pressure

Pledges of their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor were vital
Essential to the success of the revolution was their unity
Noteworthy was their appeal to "The Supreme Judge of the world"*

'Decisions' unbacked by action is best defined as 'considerations'                                                            
Existence of God and reliance upon Him were evident
Not concessions or appeasements, but resistance is the remedy against evils
Courage is the capacity to meet danger without giving way to fear**
Enumerating their greviances, the colonists left no doubts

*Declaration of Independence, last paragraph, line 2
**Webster dictionary
