Thoughts On Independence Day

Today, the 4th of July, is America’s Independence Day.

242 years ago today, the Declaration of Independence was adopted and ratified as the backbone of the new American democracy.

While this country and her citizens is far from perfect, I am proud to call this country home. I have written in the past about my immigrant forebears, who like millions of others, left their families and homelands for the freedom and opportunity that America represents.

Whatever you’re doing today, whether it be the beach, a barbecue, a family reunion, watching the fireworks or simply hanging out at home in the air conditioning, have a safe and happy Independence Day.
