For 85 years, Danes and Americans have come together on the hills of Rebild to celebrate America's Independence Day. The faithfulness with which this tradition has been observed is a testament to the deep friendship and profound goodwill between our two nations.

As we Americans celebrate the anniversary of our nation's birth, we give thanks not only for our enduring heritage of liberty under law, but also for the continuing expansion of democratic ideals around the globe. More than 200 years after our founders signed the Declaration of Independence, no political creed has proven to be more powerful than the simple statement :that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

When the United States won its independence, Denmark was one of the first countries to recognize our fledgling democracy. Today, Americans take great pride in our friendship with the people of Denmark, a country whose advocacy of human rights and democratic principles around the world is an eloquent affirmation of the values we share.

Best wishes for a memorable celebration.

Bill Clinton
