Caring Citizen Declaration

I am a caring citizen.
I occupy empathy.
I here highly resolve that 
this nation, under God, 
shall have a new birth 
of freedom - and 
that government 
of the people, 
for the people,
by the people
shall not perish 
from the earth.
I am a person
with human rights.
I care for my own
Safety and Happiness
and that of others.
I am the solution
to expanding life, 
liberty, and the pursuit 
of happiness.
And for the support
of this declaration,
joining caring citizens
known and unknown,
we mutually pledge
to each other
our Lives, our Fortunes,
and our
sacred Honor.
