Storyboard Text

  • Once upon a time, a group of people left their homeland to live in a faraway land ruled by Britain.  The people were called colonists.  The colonists loved their new homeland.
  • However, many colonists were unhappy with the British government.  They thought the king was a selfish, cruel ruler.  
  • Eventually, the colonists became angry with the king and fought against him because they wanted freedom and representation in the government.
  • When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to end the government tie with another country, requires that they should announce the reasons which force them in to seperation.
  • That to defend these rights, governments are made among men, getting their fair powers from the permission of the people.
  • We hold these truths to be obvious, that all men are created equal, that they are given by their creator with certain rights that can't be taken away, that among these are life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
  • The history of the present king of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and illegal taking of power all having the goal of the establishment of an absolute government by an unfair ruler over these colonies.
  • To prove that this (England has taken away) let the proof be shown. He has refused his agreement to laws and rights, needed for the public good.
  • That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these rights, it is the right of the people to change or to end it and to create a new government.
  • In every stage of these unfair actions we have asked for Relief and in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.  A prince whose character is thus marked by Every Act which may Define a tyrant is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
  • We, therefore,... solemnly publishing and announce, that these United Colonies are, in and of right ought to be free and independent states.
