Declaration of Sentiments

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one portion (group) of the family of man to assume among the people of the earth a position different from that which they have been occupied (given), but one to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle (guarantee) them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes (reasons) that impel (make) them to take such course (action).

We hold these truths to be self-evident (obvious): that all men and women are created equal; that they are endowed (given) by their Creator with certain inalienable (automatic) rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights governments are instituted (started), getting their just powers from the consent of the governed. Whenever any form of government becomes destructive, it is the right of those who suffer from it to refuse allegiance (accept), and to insist upon the institution (start) of a new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.
