A Very Happy Fourth of July to my visitors from the United States.
“My dream is of a place and time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.” – Abraham Lincoln
Today, Lincoln’s words ring truer than ever. While Americans celebrate the 257th birthday of the United States – there are still things that must change, and some that must not. As Americans reinterpret their freedoms, new forms of intolerances are born. As Americans take a step forward toward equality of various kinds, individual freedoms are trampled upon. As Americans open their hearts and accept diversity, they let gender-inequality thrive in the land of freedom and opportunities.
The eagle looks skywards and asks – Is this the right direction?
Happy Fourth of July to everyone who loves what America has always stood for – hope, freedom, and opportunity.
