All Men are Created Equal…

Freedom and equality are spelled out in the U.S. Declaration of Independence. Signed in 1776, it says "all men are created equal."

Those words weren't always backed up with action. Numerous groups experienced discrimination that prevented individuals from achieving their personal best. The 13th and 14th Amendments to the Constitution outlawed slavery and guaranteed equal protection under the law.

But segregation and discrimination against various groups continued afterwards, in blatant violation of the Constitution. Other steps have been taken to rectify it. But those steps have had unintended consequences.

Are the words in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution now reality? How can each individual achieve their Personal Best?
