One of my favorite events each year is the Adult Education graduation ceremony. It's a particularly special occasion for me because it celebrates the accomplishments of people for whom school didn't work out the first time.

While Ben Franklin was key to the crafting of the Declaration of Independence, the other Founding Fathers did not want him to be the main author - as they felt they couldn't trust him not to put a joke in it!
The great, big and wonderful approval of going independent actually occurred on July 2 -- a day which John Adams thought would forever after be celebrated by the newly formed nation.
