July 4th and the turn of our neighbors to the South this week to burn weenies, get drunk and handle explosives.
The USA is going through a rough patch right now. Fragmented, confused, dissonant and more than a little broke. They deserve a party.
But I know they’ll come back stronger and more united than ever. They always do. And the rest of us need them to.
That built in resilience is mostly because they began with a clear vision of who they were and what they wanted to be.
Happy July 4th, American readers. Never forget where you come from and how you got here…
