This week is “Celebrate Freedom Week” across our state. The Preamble states …

Today we will wrap up our learning around the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence by examining what is meant in the phrase “consent of the governed.” According to the Declaration of Independence, government does not give individuals the natural rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Individuals are born with these rights, and government protects these rights with the consent of the governed. Government, then, gets its power from the people who are being governed. Government becomes tyrannical when the government becomes oppressive and does not protect the rights of the people. If this happens, the people have the right to “alter or abolish” the government (change or replace it with another government). This was something that had never been done before. To ensure their promise was not empty, the signers let the world know that they were committed to ensuring that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness were the key principles upon which their nation would be built.”
