To 4th or Not To 4th

I guess not. Not while kids are still in cages. Indigenous neighbors still don’t have sovereignty rights. Systemic racism is still a thing and many people don’t get it or even try to. And a president gives a speech that divides rather than unites. I guess United States of America is a foreign notion to him.

So, no. No 4th of July “celebration”. When we can honestly claim to be “for all” as was stated, then, and only then can we celebrate.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. The Declaration of Independence. So no. We are not there yet.
