Obama urges Americans to live up to Declaration
The Associated Press
In his weekly radio and online address, Obama commemorates the Fourth of July by looking back at the day in 1776 that a small band of patriots declared those in the American colonies "a people created equal" - free to think and worship and live as they please.
Obama says their declaration was "heard around the world."
Obama says few bet that the Americans would win the revolution that followed. He calls it the first of many times the doubters of America were proven wrong.
