Celebrating the 4th of July Today is Like Throwing a Baby Shower for a Miscarriage

At best it's awkward.  At worst it's dishonest.  It's sad to make such a statement, but it's true.  We are no longer the land of the free or the home of the brave.  We just aren't.  We should stop papering over the reality, and instead start trying to fix it.  Accepting it and proclaiming the truth, is a necessary first step.

Enjoy your weekend.
