America’s Birthday is also celebrated in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and England. In Denmark, where people listen to songs and speeches about the friendship between the United States and Denmark, the celebration is known as ‘Rebildfest.’
Delaware’s delegation to the Continental Congress put a unanimous endorsement of the Declaration at risk. Delaware delegate George Read was adamantly opposed to the Declaration (many still harbored an affinity for Great Britain and others feared for their careers and the fate of their families), while fellow Delawarians Thomas McKean and Caesar Rodney favored its adoption. Yet it appeared that Rodney, who was suffering from terminal cancer, might arrive in Philadelphia a day too late to break the Delaware delegation’s deadlock. However, the insistent Rodney rode all night through darkness, lightning, and thunder to arrive just in time to cast his affirmative vote, without which the Declaration would not have been unanimous.
Your dilemma goes deeper than having a shortage of time, it’s basically a problem of priorities.Most people leave undone those things that should be done, while they do things that they shouldn’t be doing
Set priorities for your goals.
Life is made up of a series of experiences. Each one will make you stronger, even though it may be hard for you to realize it at the time.
Life is your classroom in which you’re being tested, tried, and passed.
Always try to stay in the midst of life and activity.
Don’t isolate yourself from the action.
All successful people became successful, because they gave some talent or ability in the service of others.
You can contribute in some way to others, no matter how small your talent.
Horace Poem By Monty Python
Much to his Mum and Dad’s dismay
Horace ate himself one day.
He didn’t stop to say his grace,
He just sat down and ate his face.
“We can’t have this his Dad declared,
“If that lad’s ate, he should be shared.”
