Whatever it may be becoming, and whether today you love it or hate it, Independence Day celebrates the creation of a country with a dream of equality for everyone, a dream that has matured not so much in its vision–which was already profound–but in the inclusivity of the idea of everyone. We need to continue this trend, not allow it to reverse, and we must extend the embrace of the concept of equality ever wider in the years to come.
Now, regarding fireworks, if you’re setting them off, be careful. If you hear how much Macy’s spent, don’t lose your mind. And if you’re just watching, enjoy and maybe even sing Katy Perry songs.
Happy Independence Day Eve, and Happy Independence Day
