Living up to the words

Today being Independence Day here in the United States, it's worth remembering the most famous lines of the Declaration of Independence:

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.

It is thus poignant that the legislature and governor of New York chose to put those words into application so close to the anniversary of their authorship.
