I love this country. It is the best country on the planet and still worth standing up for, as flawed as we are - we are still a true democracy and I'm proud.
I also love the New York Times, who had this simply printed on the back of the front section:
Have you read The Declaration of Independence lately? Or the Constitution? Maybe we all should, and really think about what it meant then, and what it means now. Maybe if we did that we'd stop hollering at each other and be able to have a discussion. That is my wish this 4th of July.
Happy Independence Day!
