    Today marks the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress in 1776, resulting in the holiday being known in the United States as Independence Day.

    This document is unique in that it explicitly stated that all men [now humans] are created equal. As we are seeing today, this value is a difficult one to uphold, not only in our present era, but throughout history as well.
