Happy 4th of July, Americans.
However you celebrate, remember that freedom is a lifestyle people worldwide struggle to achieve.
Freedom marches on sore feet. Freedom cries on an empty belly. Freedom learns in all colors. Freedom prays in many languages. Freedom hurts. Freedom heals.
We all have a stake in making the Declaration of Independence and the American Constitution an ongoing force. An evolving reality that began with dissension over wordage and power. And changed. And changes still.
Be civil. Be fair. We are stronger united but many voices demand an ear. Listen. Read.
We are the face of humanity for the rest of the world.
We are the standard of liberty for all people.
Be civil. Be seen. Be loud. Be present.
March. Write. Speak. Think. Vote.
Assure rights to all Americans. Every day. Every year. Every place.
Life. Liberty. Pursuit of happiness.
Happy 4th of July.
