July 4, 2016 Declaration of Independence

July 4, 2016 Declaration of Independence 
Soooo I woke up this morning thinking about writing a Declaration of Independence.
There are many available guidelines that look something like this
 Write Your Own
Declaration of Independence
It is possible to see in The Declaration of Independence a Five-Part Structure:
1) A Preamble which answers the question: Why are we writing this document?
2) A Philososphical Foundation which answers the question: What gives us the right to declare our independence?
3) A List of Grievances which answers the question: How have our basic rights been violated?
4) An Explanation of Previous Actions which answers the question: What have we already done to solve our problems up to this point?
5) A Resolution which answers the question: What do we now intend to do?

Your Job
Choose an area or issue in your own life from which you would like to declare independence.
Write your own
Personal Declaration of Independence
in which you follow the same Five-Part Structure.
How long does it have to be?
It needs to use all five parts and develop each as thoroughly and as creatively as you can.
Hmm... maybe it's not Independence you want but a mission statement
Write A Personal Mission Statement

Step #1: Examine the lives of others.
Step # 2: Determine your ideal self.
Step # 3: Consider your legacy.
Step #4: Determine a purpose.
Step #5: Clarify your aptitudes.
Step #6: Define specific goals.
Step #7: Craft your mission statement.
Step #8: Refine it.
or maybe you want to be
Writing your Constitutional self Mission
 by thrake

Step 1: preamble outline
Who's doing this) We the People
    of the United States,
(What we're doing, details) in Order to
    form a more perfect Union,
    establish Justice,
    insure domestic Tranquility,
    provide for the common defence,
    promote the general Welfare, and
    secure the Blessings of Liberty to
    ourselves and our
   (For whom we're doing it) Posterity
(What we're doing) ordain and establish this Constitution for the
    United States of America.
Step 2: Article One
This is the text of Article One of the US Constitution. It is very organized. Use it as an outline for your Mission/Life Plan, For myself I have three sections. One each for Body, Mind, and Spirit. These are general monographs and each is it's own topic. 
Step 3: Replace the Preamble
Now replace the parts in the preamble outline with your own:
As a patriarch, in Zion, (who)
in Order to strive for greater perfection, (purpose)
in body,
and spirit,
grow closer to my Heavenly Father,
provide for my family and secure the Blessings of The Gospel to my family and our Posterity,
do establish and (what)
this Constitution for the My family...My Life Plan
Step 4: replace article one
Step 5: replace article one, again
Step 6: replace article one, one last time

All of this to say I have been thinking about what the 4th of July/Independence means in the United States.
