Declaration of Independence¬† Adopted by the Constitutional Congress and signed on July 4th, 1776, it made America free from the colonization of Great Britain. On this document Thomas Jefferson wrote “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.”

Cool Fact: In 2006, Will Smith stared in a movie directed by Gabriele Mucinno titled The Pursuit of Happyness

What Jefferson meant by “The Pursuit of Happiness” has been speculated for centuries. What was Jefferson trying to tell us? Can happiness only be pursued and never really grasped or is happiness something you have to work towards? Will you know once you obtain it? Is this an internal battle or a fight for worldly possessions?
