Happy 4th of July!

In the United States, not only was the country’s Declaration of Independence signed on this day in 1776, but two of the founding fathers (John Adams and Thomas Jefferson) died exactly 50 years later on July 4, 1826. Often on opposing sides of the then-friendly debates that defined the country’s political system, the two men were vital in establishing the nation. Some say Jefferson (with his pal Benjamin Franklin) even had an astrological agenda! Whatever the case, there’s something synchronistic about the simultaneous passings on the very day of the nation’s birth.
