Patriotic Terms Contest Winner

In my last Vocab Builder, I asked you to guess which important American document all the terms came from. Although I received a lot of correct responses, freelance copywriter Christine Parizo was the first to guess correctly. Congratulations, Christine!

All the terms came from the Declaration of Independence:

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

Christine will receive a 14 in. x 16 in. parchment copy of this great document. Thanks to all who participated!
