Well . . . . do we . . . ???
So, today is the Fourth of July. It's our Independence Day. While growing up, I always thought of this as America's day to express pride in our history and pride in our place in the world, and pride in what we stand for and have always stood for. However, all the recent events --- and our country's response and our population's reaction to them --- have, I believe, robbed us of our grounds for any pride. Ask an African-American person if they are proud of this country. Ask an Asian-American if they have pride in living here. Ask an LGTBQ person. Ask a cop. Ask anyone who's been paying any attention to how we've comported ourselves or anyone who's seen who we've elected to public office. We've become an egocentric and xenophobic pile of hate. Just like our President. Sad.
So, ask yourself. Do we still have ANYTHING to be proud of on America's birthday. Well . . . . do we . . . . ???
