Happy Fourth of July
As we celebrate today, let us think about not only where we’re from, but also what it means to be American.
It’s America’s birthday. A time greeted with fireworks, food, fun, and flags snapping in the wind around the country. For many, it’s a time to meet up with family and friends and make merry. Others may prefer to follow up on their usual weekly sports or just stay indoors and relax.
While we commemorate America’s freedom, this day should also be one of introspection – to think about not only where we’re from, but who we really are.
On the Fourth of July, we celebrate and remember what happened in 1776, America standing up for itself against its colonists. We revel in the assertion that “all men are created equal” and come together to uphold the dream of a country which the Declaration of Independence promoted.
While present society may be far from perfect, especially as we still battle a pandemic and hard economic times, the thought of everyone being entitled to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” should be a source of hope for the future. These words which are still relevant today should challenge us to want to be better people, better neighbors, better workers for us to have a better society.
So after we’ve gazed at the brightly lit skies and had our savory barbecues, let us actually take a moment to remember what this all means. To remember what we have to do to actually embody the America that those before us dreamt of and wanted for us.
The dream of an America where everyone is equal is one which we should all pursue.
