Happy 4th of July
I feel we have a lot of things to fix in this country (starting with literacy), but I also feel very blessed and proud to be an American. With all our freedoms and privileges comes a large amount of responsibility to increase understanding amongst the peoples of the world, to free people from oppression (without using violence, thank you very much) and to set an example of the ability of human beings to govern themselves.
There! That is my speech; it didn't cost you a dime; you didn't have to drive or park; but there will be no fireworks.
