Letter to the Editor 6-28-13

Dear Editor,
 In 1787, the delegates of the Constitutional Congress met in Independence Hall in Philadelphia to hammer out the Constitution. Tempers flared and finally Ben Franklin, the least religious of those present, at the age of 81 years old, stood up and said, “I have lived a long time. The more proofs I see of the truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. ‘Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it.’ (Psalm 127:1). We cannot leave it to chance, war, conquest or despair of establishing this government.”
 He asked them to pray and ask the Help of Heavens’ Blessings before they proceeded on the business of writing the Constitution. George Washington felt that it was a Miracle.
 In The Declaration of Independence, it states, “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.”
