June 15, 2015: 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta
Today, June 15th, marks the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta by King John of England, a document which stands for the principles of Individual Rights and Liberties and limits on the powers of government. In essence, it is a symbol of freedom for everyone everywhere in that no one, no person or group or government is, in any way whatsoever, above the laws of the land.
For embracing the spirit and intent of the Magna Carta
