Declaration of Independence - My Evaluation of the Declaration of Independence

My Evaluation of the Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence is a very important document written by Thomas Jefferson, and approved by The Congress of the United States of America in 1776. It was written on the 2nd of July, 1776, and made public two days later, on the 4th of July. This document is very important, because it represents the freedom of the American Nation.

Its purpose is to explain to the whole wide world what mistakes made the British Parliament regarding the colonists' rights and life, and what facts led them to a war for secession with Britain. The document serves very well, effectively, its purpose, because it makes its points clear.

The ideas put forth in this document are very well expressed, and Thomas Jefferson wrote truthful things, except for a few facts. On one hand Thomas Jefferson accused the king of Britain's wrongdoings, but mostly the Parliament was the one to blame. On the other hand he accused the king for the slavery business, though that was not truth, nor fair.

Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence so that everybody would understand its purpose, but the tone is very adequate to the high-class people. Jefferson knew that this document was supposed to be an example to other countries and their kings, and so it was. This Declaration of Independence of the free American people inspired other nations and their leaders.

The paragraphs and the sentences of this document are long, so that the reader could understand better the idea that is pointed out. Though the document is not so long, it has strong words that make the reader understand better what the main ideas are. Nowadays, we don't use long paragraphs and sentences, but short ones.

My conclusion is that this document, by the way it's written, should put an end on all conflicts on this world, because Thomas Jefferson, with great skill and very strong words, explains that no one can live peacefully if somebody else does not allow him to taste the beauties of life.
