Fourth of July http://www.kunc.org en Reading The Declaration Of Independence: A Tradition Continues http://www.kunc.org/post/reading-declaration-independence-tradition-continues It was 238 years ago today that church bells rang out over Philadelphia, as the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. That revolutionary document not only formalized the American colonies' united front in the Revolutionary War, it articulated the ideals of human equality and self-determination that still serve as the guiding principles of American government.<p><em>Morning Edition</em> continues its Independence Day tradition of reading that document aloud.
