Poetry Friday - Sweet Independence

Meant to be performed, the words of the Declaration of Independence are even more inspirational when read aloud. In fact, I show this to my students every year, because it makes the Declaration so much easier to appreciate and understand. Thank you, Norman Lear, for this amazing piece of work. Do watch and listen. I promise you'll have chills by the end of it. I always do.

The round up today is being hosted by Aerin at In Search of Giants. Do stop by to take in the great poetry being shared. Before you go, check out this week's poetry stretch results. Happy poetry Friday, all!
