Typically, I’m not the most patriotic person out there. However, on July 4th, I like to forget about all the things that have been upsetting me about this country and our current president and remember how far we’ve come and to think about some of the things that make me proud.
This year, I’m working on this day, but on the drive home I’m sure I’ll see some fireworks in the sky and marvel at explosives being used for something beautiful.
America has a complicated history. It was built from terror, battles, and a sense of conquering. It’s not a happy history, but we can choose to make America better by being better as people and treating others with respect and reflecting that with the laws we choose to vote for and the causes we choose to advocate for.
On a lighter and mildly interesting note: I found out if you search for 4th of July on an IPhone, fireworks appear from the bottom of the screen.
Anyway, I hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July. I hope you all eat some great food and spend some good times with family and friends.
