“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.”

I am made more aware of this quote from the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson, each year as the 4th of July holiday nears. It reminds me how the colonists felt entitled to certain basic rights, yet England’s King George III scoffed at the idea that people were created equal or that they had the right to be happy.

This Declaration was the outcry, the final straw that sparked the creation of a new nation built on the principles of human equality and our birthright to pursue our own happiness. Hmmm. Does that sound familiar? Of course it does! Those are also the founding principles of the Bio-Touch organization. When we touch another person using this light, loving technique, we are allowing ourselves and the other person to share a place of equality, and to claim our birthright to be happy, healthy and loved.

Bio-Touch affords us our independence from symptoms of disease, giving the gift of freedom from the tyranny of fear and pain, and the havoc it can wreak on our lives and the lives of our loved ones.

This year, while watching fireworks and enjoying parades highlighting the American spirit, let’s also declare our right to equality, independence, and freedom by embracing Bio-Touch. It’s our birthright.
