Read aloud by the announcers on NPR.
My favorite part? The concluding lines:
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Don you didn’t just turn this Declaration into an argument for higher taxes did you?
Hi Jim – That’s an innovative interpretation of the closing words of the Declaration!. Not what I had in mind, but your mileage may vary.
I confess, I couldn’t make it through. That was some terrible reading of a glorious document. That passionless monotone may work well for informing people of news and pretending to not have a bias about it, but it fails abjectly when honoring something for which people would pledge their lives and sacred honor.
