Happy independence day.  While taking your coffee break, give this document signed by fallible but brave men 246 years ago a read….

I took these photos a decade ago on

a memorable night

in the sixth boro.

Later I posted my first “illuminations” post, reprising language from one of the 56 signers of that document, who put aside their petty disagreements to unite on what they considered common ground despite their differences.

Like I said, from one fallible person to all the rest of you fallible folks, happy independence day.

All photos, WVD.
